Around The Web: Querying, Black Sci-Fi, Comic Mentorship & Summer Reading

Welcome back, readers! Things have begun to open up again, and whether you’ve ventured out or you’re still holding fast at home, there’s always room for some bookish content. This week, I’m sharing a newly signed author’s querying experience, an opinion piece on the value of Black Sci-Fi, an informal mentorship opportunity for artists, and a summer reading club for kids.

A Querying Experience

Writer Joanne Machin recently announced that she’s signed with a literary agent and subsequently shared a post describing her querying experience, including her stats and some resources. My favourite advice is to think of your query letter as “a marketing asset,” but there’s lot of other advice for those entering the querying trenches.
