Brian Henry

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers, teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Windsor to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get their first book published and launch their careers as authors.

You’re invited to bring a draft of a query letter you might use to interest an agent or publisher in your book. Bring two copies and we’ll whip it into shape so that you’ll have agents begging to see your manuscript. Registration for 15-minute consultations between 1 and 3 p.m. on October 3 will open soon.

A former participant on Brian’s query letter clinic:

Brian,

At one of your How to Get Published workshops you helped me re-work my query letter. Before that, I’d queried dozens of agents, and guess how many of them asked to see my manuscript? None.

After you helped me rewrite, I sent my new query to six agents and all of them asked to see my full manuscript. It was like I discovered the secret password.

Thank you so much,

Sohan S Koonar
Windsor, Ontario.
