OCC/RWA Meeting – “Conquering the Query” & Inside Advice from an Agent
OCC/RWA Chapter Meeting: Saturday, December 10, 2011
Doors open @ 9 a.m.
Ask-an-Author: Diane Pershing
Author First Chapter Critique: Diane Pershing
Louisa Bacio –  “Conquering the Query”
Most often a publisher will request an author to submit the first few chapters of the work in progress (WIP), along with the synopsis. And as a bonus, the writer needs to include a catchy query letter – aka a cover letter – in order to grab the agent’s/editor’s attention in the first place.
Conquering the Query combats the fear that comes with writing short.
Hands-On Craft Workshop: Come prepared to work! Bring the first page of your manuscript – and hopefully you’ve been working on those killer opening lines because we’re going to use them. If not, get going! Also, make sure to have plenty of paper and pens on hand, because during this craft workshop … we be writing!

Hope to see you on the 10th!
