"The Query Letter You'd Love to Send" Contest

The Renegade Writers have a new contest: Write the query letter you'd love to write but would never send -- for example, a query for Dog Fancy about 10 ways cats rock out over dogs, or a query for Ms. magazine on how to make your floors sparkle. Make up sources, make up quotes. Make us laugh! We'll post our favorite three here on the blog and let you vote for your favorite. The winner will get a free, signed copy of The Renegade Writer's Query Letters That Rock when it's released in November.

Editors, you can get in on the game, too! Send us the rejection letter you'd want to send...if you want to be anonymous, that's fine. The writer of the best, funniest rejection letter will win a copy of The Dimwit's Dictionary, a Marion Street Press book about misused words and phrases.

To submit, send your essay or rejection letter to me at (no attachments, please). Deadline is August 15, 2006.
