A couple of weeks ago, we announced a new venture for BookEnds President, and Literary Agent Jessica Faust… a workshop on Speakeasy! And if you missed signing up for those sessions, we’re thrilled to report you have another chance. Jessica will be doing another Speakeasy query workshop in May!
If you’ve been following along, you know that BookEnds has put out a wealth of free information on our social media platforms. From informative new Instagram series, expanded topics on YouTube, free events for Clubhouse users and more.
Now we’d love for you to join Jessica for an interactive query workshop. Here’s more about what you can expect from the event:
The first step to getting a traditional book deal is a query that grabs a literary agent’s interest and has them begging to read the rest of the book. In this 2-part workshop, you’ll learn how to write the rejection-proof query with specific emphasis on the blurb—the most important piece. In addition, we’ll talk about an attention-grabbing title and how to write a bio that highlights your strengths, even if you don’t have previous writing credentials.
You’ll also learn how to use the query as a larger part of your writing process rather than just a means to an end. Attendees will have the opportunity to workshop their queries with Jessica and get input not just on the query, but on how reading the query can inform the writing of the book itself.
This event is a good fit for adults who have a complete or near-complete manuscript (or proposal, if non-fiction) and who are preparing to query agents.-SpeakEasy
