During this event, we will discuss common mistakes that writers make when submitting to agents or editors such as following guidelines, doing the appropriate research, and the importance of the first ten pages. We will discuss backstory/info-dumping, the importance of narrative voice, pacing, tone, and knowing your genre. We will also talk about the difference in a query letter summary versus a synopsis and why this distinction is important.


This event will be great for writers who are in the querying process or writers who are thinking about querying.
