Query Letters That Work, with Curtis C. Chen

Query Letters That Work, with Curtis C. Chen

September 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Presented by Vancouver Willamette Writers. All are welcome.

So you’ve written a novel. Great! Now let’s talk about how to sell it. Query letters are still the best way to get an agent (and there’s a specific format that agents expect to see), but the skills used to write a query will also help you with other aspects of book marketing and promotion, no matter how you publish. Curtis will discuss how to feature the important parts of the story without telling the whole story.
