Improve Your Manuscript

Write a Catchy Query Letter

  • Be original!

  • Tell the agent how you heard about them.

  • Research. Make sure to address your query to a specific agent who specializes in your type of writing.

  • Briefly describe the plot of your manuscript.

  • Make sure to include the number of words in your manuscript.

    • Also include the type of manuscript and the publisher and line you are targeting, if applicable.​

  • Bios get your foot in the door. Mention any published works you may have.

  • Describe any expertise you have on the subject you’re writing about.

  • Be brief. A one-page query letter is best.

Write a Great Synopsis

  • The synopsis for fiction works should include the beginning, the conflicts, the resolutions and the ending.

  • It must be written in the present tense.

  • A synopsis represents you and your work. Take your time, make it interesting, read it out loud, and wherever necessary, improve…improve…improve it, until you are happy with the final result
