- the tools necessary to write a successful query letter

Woodsburner won the New York Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, the Massachusetts Center for the Book Novel Prize, and the Texas Institute of Letters Stephen Turner Prize for First Novel. John will be the Dobie Paisano Fellow for the spring of 2011. He recently sold his second novel to Doubleday based on just a query and synopsis.
