Hello Lakeland Writers!
First, I look forward to seeing everyone at Wednesday’s Lakeland Writers meeting. January’s meeting will be a traditional mini-lesson and read & critique get-together. Need a prompt:
Eye Contact: Write about two people seeing each other for the first time.
Second, our February meeting–February 15–will be an online class about WRITING FANTASTIC QUERY LETTERS held by Molli Nickell. Molli is a 10-year member of the FWA, and a 30-year veteran of the publishing business as a Time-Life editor, acquisitions editor, and publisher. This meeting will be from the comfort of your own living room.
This class is open to all Lakeland Writers but the first 4 FWA members to submit their query letters to me at email@example.com will be able to have their letters critiqued live with Molli during the class. Not an FWA member? Click here to join.
Read the attached documents for instructions and more information.

Here’s a little bit about Molli:
In 2001, she opened her virtual office to help writers move through the learning curve from completed manuscript to agent acquisition. Currently, she directs Agent/Query Submission Central, a membership teaching site where writers learn to craft effective query letters, synopses, manuscript first pages, and structure their agent quest protocols.
Then they’re ready to step out into the publishing world, armed with submission packages that prove they’re the real deal: skilled writers with saleable manuscripts. Meet her via the video on my home page at www.getpublishednow.biz.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any additional information.
Third, I’m attaching a link to the Lakeland Public Library’s upcoming events which includes other writer’s groups, publishing panels, and open mic times at the end of this email.
