Learn How to Write Queries, Opening Pages, and Synopses
Web Version »
During this December 2017 boot camp, literary agents will show you how to put together the best query letter, opening pages, and synopsis to hook the attention of Agents and Editors. As you learn what makes up an amazing submission package, 5 literary agents from Corvisiero Literary will tell you what agents look for when reviewing your work. They will help you draft and perfect your query letter, your book synopsis, and the first five pages of your book. Before sending in your pages for critique, you will have a chance to participate in the online Q&A session with the agents. Every participating writer will not only learn how to properly prepare a captivating submission package that will show results, they will also receive a critique with customized tips and suggestions from a literary agent.
This program will show you how to do the following:

  • What information should be included in your query letter
  • How to avoid vague language that will sink your submission
  • How to boil down your entire book into 1-2 paragraphs
  • How to understand the differences between pitching fiction/memoir (where the story is key) vs. pitching nonfiction (where concept and platform are key)
  • How to draft an effective synopsis
  • How to properly introduce your story's main characters and, if necessary, the story world
  • How to pull agents in and get them interested in your main character(s)—and their journey
  • How to understand clear core points in your story that are mandatory to present your story
  • How to give visual snapshots of your book
  • How to apply the golden rule of pitching: Show, don't tell
  • How to identify the most exciting elements that illustrate your work
  • How to use a cliffhanger and when use a hook to keep agents wanting more
  • How to eliminate commonly used yet ineffective clichés in pitches, such as rhetorical questions
  • How to deliver enough of the flavor of the book to wet the reader's appetite for more and how to keep the momentum going
  • How to make your query letter (or in-person pitch) entice an agent/editor to request your full manuscript
By the end of this Agent One-on-One program, you will be chock-full of actionable wisdom. You will take away well-drafted materials that will get you noticed. The critiques will cut through the mystery of attracting an agent or editor to say YES, and you'll have a clear path on what to do next.

On December 12, 2017, you will gain access to a special online tutorial in the course system presented by literary agents from the Corvisiero Literary Agency. This tutorial will provide nuts & bolts advice on how to help you prepare your query, your synopsis and get your first two pages ready for review.

After listening to the presentation, attendees will spend the next two days revising materials as necessary. Following the tutorial, writers will have two days in which to log onto the discussion boards and ask your assigned agent questions related to revising your materials. The agents will be available for a discussion session from 1-3 p.m. (ET) on both Wednesday, December 13 and Thursday, December 14, 2017. By end of day (11:59 p.m., ET) on Friday, December 15, attendees will submit your query, synopsis and the first 5 pages of your manuscript.

The agents will spend up to 14 days reviewing all assigned submissions and provide feedback to help attendees. (The agents reserve the right to request more materials if they feel a strong connection to the work and want to read more; note that multiple agents have signed writers before from WD boot camps.) No later than Friday, December 29, agents will send their feedback to their assigned attendees.

In addition to feedback from agents, attendees will also receive via the online course system: "An Agent's Tips on Story Structures that Sell," an on-demand webinar by literary agent Andrea Hurst.
