Query Critique Contest Anyone?

Elana Johnson at is holding a query critique contest. If you enter and your name is drawn, will win a critique of your query from someone who reads multitudes of the things; someone who knows what does and doesn't work.
Yes, that's right--you could have your query critiqued by one of these top five literary agents!

1. Kate Testerman-Shafer of KT Literary (critique will be posted on her blog, Ask Daphne)

2. Michelle Andelman of Lynn C. Franklin Associates

3. Mary Kole of Andrea Brown Literary Agency

4. Michelle Wolfson of Wolfson Literary Agency

5. Joanna Volpe of Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation

If you're interested (and if you're anywhere near drafting a query you will be,) stop by her blog and sign up. I did.


  1. This is such an awesome opportunity...I wish I was anywhere near being ready to write a query letter. *sigh* Good luck to you!

  2. elana rocks! Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Thanks for posting this! I'm glad you entered -- and I hope you are one of the lucky winners!

  4. My Pleasure Elana! Your timing was serendipitous--I just yesterday sent out my very first query ever. It was torture to write, and I suspect it may be as difficult to read as it was to write. So, I'm jumping at a chance to have someone in the know tell me what I did wrong...

  5. Hi Merissa!
    Thanks for the welcome to GIAMx4! It's a small world.....Linda Rader sent me the Picasso Award after you sent it to her!
    Look forward to chatting in the future.

  6. I WON, I Won, I won!! ((Doing a VERY happy Dance.) Thanks Elana for setting the contest up.
