Join YA author Sarah Glenn Marsh for a workshop on the business of querying, from crafting a killer query letter to best practices when approaching agents online or at a conference, and how to interpret any feedback you receive while querying. Marsh will break down the components of a great query letter using examples (including some from volunteer participants!), explain the value of comp titles and how to choose them, and will ensure everyone leaves the class with the feedback necessary to create their best query yet, as well as resources to research potential agents.
