Hit all the right elements by getting writing coaching and editing support
Have questions about this service?
A cover letter is an “introduction” of you and your manuscript, typically used when submitting your work to a literary magazine or submitting a larger package to a literary agent or independent/academic publisher.
The literary cover letter should be tailored to the exact magazine or independent publisher, directed to the correct editor, brief, professional in tone and formatting, and highlight the author’s prior publications and experience.
Your editor can help ensure you’ve hit on all the right information, used the most correct tone, and will gladly be your last eyes on the lines to make sure they’re crisp, professional, and correct. After all, when you consider the sheer volume of submissions an agent or publisher receives in a week, you want to make sure yours stands out above the rest.
To begin, make sure you’ve hit on everything required by reading our comprehensive article on “How to Craft the Perfect Literary Cover Letter.”
In addition to working with you on your cover letter, your writing coach and editor will be happy to support you with your query, nonfiction book proposal, submission materials, and more from helping you craft them to editing and proofreading them, to working with you to develop an approach and organizational strategy as you send your work out and keep track of your pieces’ outcomes.
Having someone by your side during this challenging and often fraught period is highly reassuring and will help you see the big picture, feel far more relaxed, and manage your various efforts as you strive for publication.
