Course Catalog

Finding an Agent: Resources and Strategies

The dates for this class have been updated from the print catalog.

All Levels | The average literary agency receives about 50 to 100 or more queries on a daily basis. This class will offer advanced strategies to help writers break through the avalanche of queries and get their manuscripts requested. We’ll use resources to identify and evaluate agencies and agents in hands-on scenarios, and determine where best to submit. Students will learn how to prepare query letters, synopses, manuscript samples, book proposals, and more, and will have opportunities to have their query materials evaluated.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
