Remember my Query Critique Week from last year? Well, I'm doing it again during the month of June. I'll offer personalized feedback on a select number of pitches here on the blog. Here's how to play:
1. Send your one-page query (for an article, nonfiction book proposal or novel) to kelly at becomebodywise.com by Monday, June 11, 2012. Make sure you put "Query Critique Week" in the subject line.
2. Cross your fingers and hope that your query gets picked to be critiqued here on my blog. (I'll only be able to choose a few.) And don't worry, I won't identify the writer of the query. I would, however, like permission to include some of them in an upcoming ebook on writing more powerful successful queries.
3. Tune in throughout June for ongoing query critiques!
So send them in ASAP...the earlier you submit yours, the more likely I am to choose it for critique.
**Finally, it's your last chance to enter the giveaway for a free, signed copy of Writer for Hire: 101 Secrets to Freelance Success. The winner will be announced Friday, June 1st.
