Agents are People, Too: Query Letter Essentials

Agents are People, Too: Query Letter Essentials from Pipeline Artists - Symposium on Vimeo.

The path to traditional publication can seem daunting, especially when it comes to finding literary representation. In the end, though, agents are just very busy people who really love books.

As someone who grew up in the publishing world, Zoe Quinton has not only known many agents but also worked as one herself. She will help you navigate the landscape of writing queries and finding the right representation for your writing career. 

This presentation will include: 

  • How to look for agents 
  • Tips on writing a query letter 
  • When to give up (hint: don’t) 

[Recorded October 11, 2023]

As the daughter of a religious studies professor and a New York Times-bestselling mystery author, Zoe Quinton was born with stories in her blood. After working in the traditional publishing industry with her mother for over a decade, Zoe branched out to form her own freelance editing and publishing consultancy business in 2017. When she’s not reading for work or pleasure—which is rare—she is probably either drinking good coffee or whiskey, doing plant lady things, and/or spending time with her husband, their two small people, and a very loud Siamese-tortoiseshell cat at their lovely home in Santa Cruz, California. You can also find her online at her websiteInstagram, or Facebook.
