Samantha Wekstein, agent at Writers House, was generous enough to join us for a #TenQueries episode. We chat with her about how she got into publishing (she worked with Jessica first!), some amazing things she’s created along the way–and how this shapes what she looks for.
Then we asked her to go through her queries inbox, choose ten at random–and tell us what they are, why they work, what they can do better–and what this means for you at home.

If, like many writers, you’re often on the go, we have a podcast so you can learn about publishing while also driving, cooking, cleaning, and going about your day.
The podcast is FREE, and brought to you by #MSWL’s educational sister company, The Manuscript Academy. You can either download (with iTunes) or stream (with Soundcloud).
Most episodes are agent and interviews, #TenQueries episodes, and/or first pages analysis–with lessons for everyone. If you’d like to submit your first page for consideration, send it (as a Word doc, please) to Academy at ManuscriptWishList dot com.
