NEWS! My first webinar of 2023 was on crafting queries and synopses and a recording of the course is now available for purchase. In it, you’ll learn the most common things I see in the hundreds queries and synopses I critique on a yearly basis as well as tips and tricks on how to make them shine! Examples of both are included, and I critique a query in the course. The pre-recorded version comes with either a query or synopsis critique that you can submit to me after you’ve watched the course and have implemented the advice.
What kind of workshops would you like to see here? Let me know!
Live workshops/webinars will be virtual via Zoom and will generally run between 90 minutes and 2 hours including Q&A.
I’m planning my 2024 webinars and can’t wait to bring them to you!
Are you preparing to query your fiction manuscript to agents or publishers? Then this course is for you!
Get your query package as perfect as it can be before querying agents or publishers. This 1.5-hour course shows you fifteen or so of the most common errors I see in the hundreds of query packages I help clients polish—and tips on how to avoid them. Then, I go over how to write a query letter and synopsis from start to finish, including all the necessary elements that will have agents and/or publishers dying to read your pages. See examples of a successful query and of a synopsis of an old (but popular!) movie (to avoid giving away spoilers from someone’s book) and I also do a critique of a registrant’s query letter.
This course comes with a critique of either your query letter or synopsis! After you implement what you’ve learned in the course, you can send me either your query letter or synopsis and I’ll provide feedback for you.
