Learn how to write great query letters for literary agents by seeing real life queries get critiqued.

Rate Query Shark

Query Shark invites writers to send in query letters they have sent out or are thinking of sending out to agents. These then get critiqued on the website.

Before you send a query letter, it’s a good idea to read this blog to see if you’re making any of the mistakes literary agent Janet Reid has advised against through her public critiques of 300+ query letters (and counting). After her line-by-line critique, authors may submit their revised queries to the “shark.”

Send in your own query for a chance to have it critiqued on the blog—but remember, this shark is brutally honest.
