The Scribbler: Agent Query Letter & Synopsis Edit


If you’re planning to submit your manuscript to a literary agent, you’ll need to have a compelling agent query letter (email) as well as a synopsis (in the case of fiction writers) or chapter outline (for nonfiction writers). And if you’re already submitting query letters but not hearing back, then perhaps you need some feedback on why that might be the case.

Why not get a book publishing professional to review and edit your agent query letter and synopsis or chapter outline?

As a former literary agent, a traditionally published author, an in-house editor and a structural editor for many writers published in the US and Australia, I can provide the sort of insider feedback you’ll never receive from a supportive friend or writers workshop — along with constructive suggestions for how to address any areas that might need work. 

Literary agents want to read great query letters. I know how to write them.

You can write one too, with a bit of insider feedback.

You’ve put so much time and effort into writing your manuscript or book proposal — why not give yourself the best possible chance of grabbing your ideal literary agent’s attention?

Once you finalise payment, please email your double-spaced draft agent query letter and synopsis or chapter outline to me at info at
