No matter where you are in your journey as a writer, if you envision leading the life of a professionally published author, you will almost certainly need a literary agent. How does one go about looking for professional representation? What's a synopsis and how long should it be? What about a query letter? What's a pitch? Is it the same as a tag line? Every literary agency wants something different; it's enough to make you miss the writing and editing process. Fear not - we're here to help! Join instructors who've been there and done that as they coach you through the submissions process. They will guide you through creating your query, synopsis and pitch in an accessible, understandable order as well as offer insights into the dos and don'ts of stepping into the professional world of publishing. The process of writing synopses and query letters can also be used as a focusing tool for those who haven't yet finished their work-in-process. NOTE: This class is suitable for students of all skill levels and at all stages of the writing process. Finished manuscripts are not required.
