You’ve Got One Shot. Make It Count.

Query letters are powerful tools. You’ve got maybe 10-15 seconds to impress a busy exec, agent, producer or manager. Is the writing snappy, concise, clever? Do you have a strong hook? Do you depict yourself in a compelling, fascinating way?

Before you make any submissions, we’re happy to take a look. Coverage, Ink founder Jim Cirile will personally read and review your query and help you to make it all it can be.

Here’s how it works: just e-mail us your query letter using the form below. Seriously, that’s all there is to it. Please note it may take Jim a few days to respond.

There is no charge for this service, no catch, no upsell.

QUERY LETTER DO’S AND DON’TS

  • DO make sure your logline is a grabber and intriguing.
  • DO keep it short and sweet. No more than three paragraphs.
  • DO make sure your writing is free of typos and grammatical errors. Proofread!
  • DO dazzle with quicksilver and ballsy writing.
  • DO convey something fascinating or unique about yourself so that people want to get to know you.
  • DO be courteous and thank the recipient for their time.
  • DO be specific with your characterizations. We care about fascinating characters way more than plot.
  • DON’T overwrite. Screenplays and teleplays should be fast reads, and so should your query.
  • DON’T pitch more than one project per query.
  • DON’T machine-gun query. Know the companies you’re submitting to and make sure your project is in their wheelhouse.
