Writing-World.com – Helpful Articles on Querying and Submissions

6 June 2013

In case you didn’t already know, Writing World has some helpful articles on querying and submissions on their Successful Queries and Submissions page, which you can find here:

http://www.writing-world.com/queries/index.shtml. If you’ve got questions about how to format a manuscript, who to address your query letter to, and what to do if you don’t have clips,

this is the place to go. You know you need to write a query letter that’s professional yet compelling. But what does a “good” query letter look like? How much information should you include in

your query? Should you tell the editor your age, your job title, your education level? In the eBook “21 Query Letters That Sold,” you can read real query letters that resulted in sales to TIME, The

New York Times, Elle and other well-known publications. Go to journalist Mridu Khullar Relph’s website to sign up for her weekly newsletter and get a free copy of the eBook:
