Online: Literary Agent Carlisle K. Webber
March 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Query Workshop with Carlisle K. Webber
Writing 85,000 words is easy. Writing a 250-word query letter to describe those 85,000 words is hard. On March 15th at 7PM, literary agent Carlisle Webber will join our combined Portland & Salem Chapter meeting to show you how to make your query letter stand out while still looking professional, including a tried-and-true structure for your book description and what to put in your author bio. Please note that this workshop will only cover letters for fiction (for both adult and children’s books).
About Carlisle K. Webber
Carlisle Webber refused to major in English in college because she didn’t think there was anything fun to read on the required lists. No Stephen King? No R.L. Stine? No thanks! After college, she took her love of commercial, YA, and middle grade fiction to the University of Pittsburgh School of Information Sciences, where she earned a Master of Library and Information Sciences. She worked as a public librarian for years before deciding to move to the business side of publishing. She attended the Columbia Publishing Course and holds a Professional Certificate in Editing from UC-Berkeley. Find out what she is looking for at her manuscript wish list.
