Email (to midwestwriters@yahoo.com with your agent’s or editor’s name in the subject line) by November 6, 2020: One-page (single-spaced) query letter + first page of your manuscript (double-spaced).

The query letter is the time-honored tool for writers seeking publication. A query letter is a sales letter that attempts to persuade an editor or agent to request a full manuscript or proposal.

It’s your all-important first contact with an agent. It’s a one-page letter that explains who you are and what your book is about. Your query must be exceptional to get agents to request sample chapters for review. If your query letter is not up to snuff, agents will send a rejection rather than a request for more material.
