We will use January’s (and February’s) meetings to prepare our members for editor/agent conference appointments. In January, we will cover a specific format for query/ cover letters. This 4 paragraph format was provided by an agent. By far, the most difficult paragraph is pitching your novel in 5 sentences. Michael Hague has provided a format for that important paragraph. Step 1: Handouts provided and explained, Step 2: Members write their paragraphs, Step 3: Break into groups and critique those paragraphs.
