About the Class:

A good query letter can be every bit as important as the opening pages of your novel. It’s your first opportunity to show your writing skills to a prospective agent or editor. Make it count! Make it shine! The same is true for your synopsis. It should tell your story and show off your writing style. How can you learn to write the perfect query letter? What should you put in a synopsis? Here’s a chance to learn how to make those query letters sing and write the synopsis that has the editor asking for more pages or the entire manuscript. Get practical information on how to write your own queries and how to create a synopsis in an easy step-by-step method.
