Many magazine, literary agents, publishers, etc., are accepting e-mail query letters. E-queries use a different format than the standard query letter sent through the postal mail. And, if you’re like me (unpublished but taken steps to rectify that deficiency) you don’t know what a query should look like.
I found an article at Associated Content that should help.It covers salutations, contact information, subject headings, attachments, and length. As always, be sure to do your homework and learn what the place your querying prefers.
My goodness, has Molly Ivins really been gone for two years?
She knew stuff:
“I realize this is not breaking news, but we are looking at something exceptional in political history with this race. . . . The Internet is breaking open old power structures and set ways of doing things. Most campaign consultants have no idea what do with it or about it. How delightful.”
So beloveds, pour yourself a Lonestar, put your feet on the table, and remember the incomparable Molly Ivins. (BTW, she first appears on the video at 17 minutes).
