TFTSP: Greetings and Salutations

Posted on: June 1, 2022

In honor of the slush pile opening this week, I’m giving you a Tip from Slush Pile: Please, please, please, for the love of all things chocolate-covered, double-check your query salutation line.
If you personalized your query with a real person’s name, great! Just make sure you are using the *correct* name for this particular publisher. Having a name instead of a generic greeting already makes me like you a little more. You pay attention to details. That’s good!
And know that I will give you serious side-eye for addressing your query to “Dear Sirs.”
