Irene Goodman (of the Irene Goodman Literary Agency–who represent me) will be conducting a live webinar on Thursday, December 16th, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on How an Agent Picks a Client: From Query to Career. This event will give you an inside look at exactly what goes through an agent’s mind through each step of the submission process when making this all-important decision. And with this peek inside an agent’s mind, writers will see what makes a query letter stand out, what makes an agent request sample pages or a book proposal, and how agents evaluate single titles vs. a book series. In addition to instructing, Irene Goodman will be taking questions live during the webinar. No question goes unanswered, and all participants are invited to submit either a query letter or the first page of a manuscript (300 words or fewer for each) immediately after the event. All submissions will receive a critique. (Irene’s fee will be donated to charity—specifically: the Foundation Fighting Blindness and the Deafness Research Foundation.) The cost is $89.
