February 17 – Kristy Hunter

Writing the Perfect Query

First impressions are everything—and even more so when it comes to landing the agent or editor of your dreams. That’s why in this workshop we will examine query letter do’s and don’ts to make sure that when it comes to presenting your manuscript, you’re putting your best foot forward. Q&A to follow.

Kristy Hunter graduated from Vanderbilt University with degrees in English Literature and Women and Gender Studies. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City and attended the Columbia Publishing Course. For several years she worked in book publicity, first at Grove/Atlantic and then at Random House Children’s Books, before moving to the agenting side of the industry. In 2014, she joined the Knight Agency and her first project, co-agented with Agency President Deidre Knight, sold at auction soon after. As an associate agent, Kristy enjoys being able to bring a unique perspective to her clients thanks to her diverse publishing background.
