Writer's Digest Boot Camp

writers digest universityWriter’s Digest University’s “How to Find and Keep a Literary Agent Boot Camp” is half-way finished for this week. I’ve learned a lot about query letters. We’ve viewed two videos, had two days of two hour discussions, and tomorrow we submit our query letter, first five pages, and synopsis for our agent’s critique. I choose Jill Marr from the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. The agents’ critiqued materials are due to attendees by April 9th. I’ve connected on social media with several people from Jill’s group discussions. It’s been an inspiring few days.

The boot camps are different from the tutorials that Writer’s Digest offers. I haven’t taken a tutorial, but I’m impressed with this boot camp.

More later. I have to do my Norman in the Painting synopsis.

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
