I've sent out 4 queries in the last 2-ish weeks and so far we stand at 1 NO and three unanswered queries. I plan on bringing my query letter back to my critique group again to see if there is anything else I can do with it. If anyone can help me, they can!
I did finally receive one YES, from DePaul University! The plan is to start classes in March, so fingers crossed I can get the school loan sorted out by then and I'll be ready to roll! I am so excited to learn everything I can about writing and publishing. Hopefully I'll have better luck from some of these agents in the coming weeks! I'll keep you posted!
