Grabbing the attention of an editor or publisher from the onset with a query letter is as important as the first page of your manuscript. Not sure what approach to use? Take this unique opportunity to attend the Children's Writers' Coaching Club teleclass, "Query Letters: Will a Great one Get You Published?"
Monday, June 27, Margot Finke will present "Query Letters: Will a Great One Get You Published" at 3 pm CST. Visit the Children's Writers' Coaching Club [http://www.cwcoachingclub.com/2011/06/query-letters-will-a-great-one-get-you-published] and learn how to participate in this valuable teleclass.
This teleclass will cover:
First things first
Query Letter Resources
Writing the Darned Thing
Members of the Children's Writers' Coaching Club will have the opportunity to submit their tentative queries so Margot can chat about what works and what doesn't.
About the instructor:
Margot Finke is an Aussie who writes mid grade adventure fiction, ghost mysteries, and rhyming picture books. For many years she has lived in Oregon with her husband and family. She began serious writing the day her youngest left for college. This late start drives her writing, and pushes her to work at it every day. Margot says, "I really envy those who began young, and managed to slip into writing mode between diaper changes, household disasters, and outside jobs. You are my heroes!" Gardening, travel, and reading fill in the cracks between her writing. Her husband, Alan, is supportive, and their three children are now grown and doing well out on their own.
Margot's "Musings," column can be read monthly in The Purple Crayon, and her Critique Service helps writers iron out plot and character problems. "Nothing gives me a greater thrill than to find out an editor bought a book I helped polish." Her workshops at writer's conferences are enhanced by the use of a PowerPoint presentation, as are her frequent school visits.
Margot's series of 6 rhyming picture books, available as downloads or on CD, are fun and educational. They bring kids closer to cool critters from the US and Australia. See Excerpts, illustrations, and great reviews on her BOOKS page, along with how to BUY . All autographed copies of her books on CD come with a Qlippit link that lets you hear Margot reading that book.
