"How to put WOW in your Query Letters to Hook Agents and Publishers"

photo Marla Miller is an author/educator and creator of "Marketing the Muse". She will share the secrets of writing an effect query letter to an agent or publisher. She invites GLAWS members to bring your query letters for an on-the-spot critiquing during the workshop. No matter what you are writing, this is a special event you must attend!

While not intended as a content query critique, a Quick Query Critique points out obstacles that obstruct the flow or 'speed bumps' that take the reader out of the query.  Her Quick Query Critique sessions became so popular in her real time workshops, Miller now offers video-ed versions online.
