Query Writing for Children’s Book Writers

All Levels. In a crowded field of aspiring children’s book writers, it can be hard to stand out. One of the best ways to help get noticed by a literary agent is to learn how to write a great query. In this agent-led seminar, students will learn how to craft a convincing query letter, the do’s and don’ts of this art form, and how to find the right agents to query. In addition, the seminar will include a workshop session for students’ queries.

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.
