Did I mention…?

There’s a lovely agent on twitter, Sara Megibow with the Nelson Literary Agency in Denver (follow her as @saramegibow), who periodically does a feed she calls #10Queriesin10Tweets.

She goes through the next 10 submissions in her Inbox and tweets her response and why.

You’d be shocked how many of them are rejections for genres and literary forms the agency doesn’t represent or rejections for multiple grammar and spelling mistakes in the query letter. I know I was astounded the first time through.

It’s fascinating stuff, and valuable information as to what an agent (this agent, at least) looks for in a query letter.
