Querying and Pitching to Publishing Professionals Webinar with Rachel Orr

The following had already been sent to all members via email by our co-regional advisors, Kathy McMillan and Sue Poduska, but the registration deadline is less than a week away, so I’m giving it another shout-out.

We hope to set up some webinars within the region. In the meantime, this one is available.

An exciting Webinar is coming up on April 26 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM CST with agent Rachel Orr on the topic of Querying and Pitching to Publishing Professionals.

Rachel Orr of Prospect Agency will discuss query letters for all types of children’s books submissions, including picture books, novels, non-fiction and illustrations. She’ll show examples of query letters from her current clients–pointing out what caught her eye-and talk about what kind of information to avoid in query letters as well. She’ll also talk about the difference between queries and pitches, and discuss the best time in your career to start the querying process.

This event is jointly sponsored by all the SCBWI chapters in Texas–Austin, Brazos Valley, Houston, North Texas, and Southwest Texas. The webinar is $10 for SCBWI members and $35 for non-members. Members please log in to get the discounted rate. Registration for the webinar ends April 24 at 4 PM.

The best part about webinars is they can be done straight from your home computer. No driving necessary.

Here is the link to the registration page.

Wow, that’s going to be a lot of information for very little money! I’m off to register.

Happy writing and drawing!


About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
