WRITING REFERENCE #6 - This post is part of a series devoted to writing reference. Click on the tag at the bottom of the blog post to pull up all the topic articles. This example contains several ‘good’ and ‘bad’ query letters. There are samples for fiction, non-fiction, book and magazine. There is a lot of advice out there on query letters, book proposals and the synopsis. These aspects of writing haunt creative types who are more used to utilizing characterization, setting, plot and dialogue to convey their voice. Even if you plan to self-publish, there’s no excuse for not attempting to query agents and publishers, remember this is highly subjective, you never know if or when you’ll find a good home for your story. As a reminder, I have listed all of the posts in this category, see below.
