On Friday, Oct 25th, 2019, I participated as one of the editors for Revise & Resub‘s mini-event, #10Queries, in which authors entered a raffle to win the chance to submit a query letter and the first five pages of a manuscript for a free review with one of the Revise & Resub editorial team.
I spent an hour tweeting about each of the ten submissions I received, with one for the query letter and one for the pages, a total of 20 tweets, plus few extra tweets with observations about query submissions in general. Privately, I responded to each of the winners with more detailed feedback on their submissions.
Even if you didn’t enter the contest, there is a lot you can learn about the query submission process by reading through my tweet thread, so take a look. You might recognize one of your own writing habits here!
