I’m working on a new blog post about cover letters, specifically, query letters to literary agents. When I was in graduate school, I never had a conversation with any of my mentors or fellow grad students about how to query agents. For me, it was a long process, and while I’m happy to have landed with Jason Ashlock of Movable Type Management I could have used some guidance beforehand, saving me tons of time in the process of finding my agent.
But that’s forthcoming.
In the meanwhile, I wrote a blog post over at The Missouri Review on cover letters to literary magazines. I’ve plenty of experience with this, both as an editor and as a writer, and it’s a quick and admittedly imperfect guide, but I hope it’s helpful. Check it out right here.
