EXT. A Good Query Letter - TWILIGHT
Query letters get read. I read some. Even when I wasn't interested.
Try interning as a script reader. After reading about 100 query letters you soon realize the importance of a succinct, catchy query letter. Recently someone I knew sent a query letter for a screenplay to the agency where I was working. The letter made me laugh out loud. The writer, a veteran of The Second City program, touring and cruise ships. Get an education.
Less is more.
If you can't pitch your screenplay in 3 sentences, you need to find another hobby.
