Get Rady! Get Set! Register! NESCBI 2011 Agent Quick Query

With Registration for the NESCBWI 2011 Conference opening very soon, we'd like to remind everyone who plans to register for an Agent Quick Query, to please have your query letter ready to submit at time of registration.
Agent Quick Query Letter Guidelines:
  • One Page
  • Addressed to: Dear Agent:
  • Middle grade or young adult novels only
  • No picture books or nonfiction
  • You may not request an agent. The AQQ coordinator reads every query letter and will match you with an appropriate agent based on each agent's submission guidelines.
The six agents are:
  • Stephen Fraser - Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency
  • Jennifer Laughran - Andrea Brown Literary Agency
  • Ammi-Joan Paquette - Erin Murphy Literary Agency
  • Linda Pratt - Wernick & Pratt Agency
  • Lauren MacLeod - The Strothman Agency
  • Chris Richman - Upstart Crow Literary
How it works:
  • When registering for NESCBWI, you can select Agent Quick Query for an additional $25.
  • Once you are registered and confirmed, you will receive an email request from the AQQ Coordinator for your one page Agent Quick Query letter for a middle grade or young adult novel, saved in a PDF format.
  • The AQQ Coordinator will send your query to the agent.
  • The agent will critique your letter and return it to you during your 10 minute AQQ critique at the conference.
This is the 3rd year of AQQ and it has been a very successful event.
