How--QueryCon 2013 Information

If one of your goals in life is to get published, we want to help all we can. Here's HOW.

Do you remember our awesome query extravaganza from last year? You know, that three week event where we had classes on drafting and polishing the perfect query followed by a workshop week where you got to do just that? And the culmination of all that learning and hard work was a week of final queries being judged by our amazing guest judges.

You know that thing that helped match up Tara Tyler and Pop Travel with a publishing contract?

It's coming again this fall.

QueryCon--September 2013

So finish up those edits and get ready.

More information to come, but here are a few quick reminders:
  • Everyone is invited to participate in the classes and workshop
  • Only finished and revised novels qualify for 3rd week final exam by our guest judges (to be announced soon as well)

We have an agent from Bent Literary Agency as one of the judges.

Just thought you'd like to know!
