Authors seeking a traditional publishing path for their novel or short story collection need to polish several pieces of prose before leaping into the fray. A well-rounded query package includes a query letter, log line, pitch, target audience summary, and a few comp titles. (The synopsis is also important, but outside this scope of this class.) We’ll go over what’s special about each piece and you’ll draft your own, with plenty of feedback provided. This package, combined with your synopsis, prepares you to pitch your book to an agent or publisher by email or through the standard Query Manager many agents use.

Savvy Authors' workshops are held on a forum: a bulletin board based system. You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.
The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.
