This 4-module online course is designed for writers preparing to send their first novel-length manuscript out to agents and publishers. What makes editors, agents and readers wince in the first few pages and/or stop reading? Why is writing a synopsis so painful? What should be in a cover letter or a query letter (and what’s the difference)? And how do you even find (and check out) the people you want to send material to?

This course is conducted via a private online classroom, which can be accessed at any time of the week. Feedback will be provided on opening pages, a 1-2 page synopsis of your book, and a cover or query letter.


  1. First Pages
