Intermediate | Agents and publishers report they’re flooded with more queries than ever before, even as they’ve cut back the number of books produced. How can you cut through the noise to get noticed? Let’s step back and look at your fiction or nonfiction work through fresh eyes. We’ll identify the things that make your project unique, marketable, and irresistible to publishing gatekeepers, and then, with lots of examples and time for practice and personal feedback, work on verbal “elevator pitches,” one-paragraph hooks for query letters, and 1-2 page synopses. This session includes a lunch break.
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.
