October 12 FWA Meeting

For our meeting on October 12, we will be discussing Query Letters. We all write to be published. Even after we polish our manuscript, we need a strong query letter to get in the door.

I'll bring a couple of my query letters, then let you (the group) help write two query letters. First, you'll help write a query for a yound unpublished Southern author - trying to sell her yarn about the trial of a black-man, told from a child's view. Next, you'll help write the query for a British author, also unpublished, who is trying to sell an extremely long novel about a young wizard.

After our talk on query letters, we'll have our usual critiques. You are welcome to bring in 2 double-spaced pages of any work in progress.

See you Tuesday.
