February 9, 2019 – Amanda Leuck, Literary Agent with Spencerhill Associates

Morning Session: First Page of Your Manuscript

Ever wonder what excites agents when they read the first page of a manuscript? Here’s your chance to discover the answers and receive feedback on the opening page of your manuscript! Amanda will give insight into what catches her eye, what doesn’t work for her and why. Attendees may submit the first page of their manuscript to programs@tararwa.com. Samples will be read anonymously.

Time is limited, so the submissions will be read in the order they are received and for the people in attendance first.

Afternoon Session: Ten Tips for Querying an Agent

Learn what agents look for in a query letter. Amanda will show examples of query letters that gave her reasons to ask for more, and examples of letters that went straight to the trash pile. Attendees will have the opportunity to have their single page query letters read aloud and be given tips to improve them.

Send your single page query letter to programs@tararwa.com. Samples will be read anonymously.

Time is limited, so the query letters will be read in the order they are received and for the people in attendance first.

This meeting is a Premium Seminar and is closed to guests. The fee to attend is $15.00. The registration form is posted in Members-Only Section.
