Make That Crucial, Positive First Impression Anyone who's researched the marketplace knows: The path to publication begins with your query letter. If your query is weak, unfocused, or uninspired, an editor or agent won't even bother to request your article, novel manuscript, or nonfiction book proposal. But a well-crafted, compelling query sent to the right editor or agent is an essential sales tool for fiction writers and the most effective way for nonfiction writers to pre-sell your idea. In this book, professional freelance writer and magazine editor Wendy Burt-Thomas shares practical advice on how to craft persuasive letters that connect with editors and agents and ultimately generate sales for you. You'll learn how to: • Conduct targeted research to find suitable editors and agents • Hook an editor with a tantalizing lead and shape a summary that compels editors to buy • Select the strongest slant for your book or article • Use research and interview shortcuts that keep your query prep profitable • Make your query rejection-proof by weeding out subtle mistakes that can sabotage your project • Communicate your author platform and sell yourself as the best writer for the subject Complete with dozens of sample queries–some that landed article assignments, agents, or book deals, and others that never stood a chance–this book offers you a comprehensive strategy for presenting your writing ideas in a way that will increase your chances of publication. Though the title may lead some to believe it's strictly to be shelved as a reference manual, The Writer's Digest Guide to Query Letters is a smooth read from cover to cover.

For more than a quarter of a century, Pat Schneider has helped writers find and liberate their true voices. She has taught all kinds--the award winning, the struggling, and those who have been silenced by poverty and hardship. Her innovative methods have worked in classrooms from elementary to graduate level, in jail cells and public housing projects, in convents and seminaries, in youth at-risk programs, and with groups of the terminally ill. Now, in Writing Alone and with Others, Schneider's acclaimed methods are available in a single, well-organized, and highly readable volume. The first part of the book guides the reader through the perils of the solitary writing life: fear, writer's block, and the bad habits of the internal critic. In the second section, Schneider describes the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method, widely used across the U.S. and abroad. Chapters on fiction and poetry address matters of technique and point to further resources, while more than a hundred writing exercises offer specific ways to jumpstart the blocked and stretch the rut-stuck. Schneider's innovative teaching method will refresh the experienced writer and encourage the beginner. Her book is the essential owner's manual for the writer's voice.

Most books on freelance writing promise the moon and don't deliver. Freelance writing is not an easy ticket to wealth -- it's an enjoyable profession for the person who has some talent and the desire to work hard. Tom Williams gives the guidance needed to make your efforts pay off. His advice is highly practical, detailed, tested, and no-nonsense. He doesn't overwhelm the reader with irrelevant digressions, or load the book with fluff and empty promises. Instead, he offers hard-earned tips, insight into how editors think, and all the information a writer needs to become a successful freelancer. None of the competitive books reveals the stylistic secrets that editors are looking for, how to protect your ideas, or what happens when your book or article gets published; Williams thoroughly covers these areas.
