The Importance of Query Critique Groups
- By: Jessica Faust | Date: May 03 2018
Thank you, Bryan, for this comment on my post about The Art of the Query. You nailed exactly what every writer needs to do. You need to get yourself a critique group for queries only. That’s what we have here at BookEnds. Almost every pitch we write goes through round after round of critique, feedback, and advice from the Team — people who have never read the book and are reading the pitch the way an editor or, in your case, an agent would.
Not only will a query critique group help your pitch, but by editing and reading other pitches/queries you will learn a lot about what makes a strong pitch and how a pitch can help with book revisions.
