Query Letter Critique Workshop [Novel Boot Camp]

NBClogoAgents and editors read a lot (a LOT!) of query letters. Naturally they have to make speedy quick decisions about which queries interest them. In this workshop, I will be simulating that lightning quick process.

On Friday (August 25) I will post each query up to the point that I lost interest with a few sentences of explanation and critique. If you missed the first page critique, you might want to check it out to get a sense of what to expect.

I will be critiquing queries on a first come, first served basis, so try to get them in early to guarantee your slot!

This workshop is part of Novel Boot Camp. If you don’t know what Novel Boot Camp is, check it out here. All writers are free to submit their query, even if they did not participate in other elements of Novel Boot Camp.

If you are self-publishing, feel free to send your back cover blurb instead of your query letter, but make sure to identify it as such in the drop down menu. Thanks!

    Hi Ellen. Thank you for all of the informative videos and related content you have been posting during the Boot Camp. Although I am working on a nonfiction book right now, much of your valuable advice works for nonfiction, too. I appreciate your insights and your continued efforts to help inspire better writing. Keep up the great work!
