How To Get A Literary Agent

Queries, Pages, and Getting to Yes

Traditional Publishers want your manuscript–but they want it through a literary agent. Searching for an agent is a long and arduous process.

Hidden Timber Books is thrilled to bring you another webinar for writers with a manuscript ready to submit. In 90 minutes, you’ll learn where to find agents right for your book and how to write a winning query that gets requests.

Join Allison K Williams to learn what must be in your query and what absolutely shouldn’t be, how to “personalize” for each agent, and the submissions-process secret for success. We’ll discuss some participant queries in the webinar and share successful queries that led to agency contracts.
