How do you hook an agent right away, keep them hooked, and make the most of your new publishing relationship? In this Boot Camp, “How to Find and Keep a Literary Agent,” you'll learn how to get a literary agent’s attention through a great submission, and also how to navigate the process of working successfully with an agent. You’ll also work with an agent online to review and refine your all-important query letter and the first five pages of your novel.

This Boot Camp will cover a range of important questions:
  • What keeps an agent reading? What makes writing jump off the page?
  • What are the most common Chapter 1 mistakes that make them stop reviewing your submission?
  • What are the steps you need to give your query and manuscript the best possible shot?
  • What are the turn-ons and turn-offs when it comes to queries?
  • How do agents make judgment calls?
  • And much more.
With real-life examples of queries that do and don’t work, you will learn how you can refine your own query letter and get an agent to request your novel.

The world of literary agencies can be an intimidating place. You’ll be lead through the inner-workings of finding the perfect literary agent, working with an agent and how to get the most out of your relationship. See what a day in the life of an agent looks like, and get tips about how to find your perfect author-agent match that will result in a successful partnership.

The best part is that you'll be working directly with a knowledgeable and experienced agent, who will provide feedback specific to your work.
Here's how it works:

On March 21st you will gain access to a special 60-minute online tutorial presented by agents at the Dijkstra Literary Agency. It will explain the submission process of submitting to an agent, what they find appealing in a query letter and what an author-agent relationship looks like from the inside. You will also be notified by email which agent you’ll be working with by Monday evening.

From 11:00 am to 1:00 pm (Pacific Time) on March 22nd and 23rd, the literary agents will be available to answer questions and provide additional feedback via the Writer's Digest University course discussion boards.

After listening to the presentation and participating in the discussion sessions, you’ll be able to revise your query & first 5 double-spaced pages as necessary. Then, you'll email those pages directly to Jill Marr, Elise Capron, Jessica Watterson, Thao Le or Roz Foster, by the end of the day on Thursday. They will spend the next three weeks reviewing their assigned critiques and providing feedback as to what works and what doesn't.

Please note that any one of the instructing agents may ask for additional pages if the initial submission shows serious promise.

In addition to feedback from instructing agents, attendees will also receive:
  • Download of "An Agent's Tips on Story Structures that Sell," an on-demand webinar by Andrea Hurst
PLEASE NOTE: No Additional discounts are available. All sales are final.

For the purpose of the bootcamp, the agents can provide feedback for genres other than what they are currently requesting professionally. Working with the agent of your preference is not guaranteed. We will do our best to match requests.
