5L: Ready for Representation? FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

How polished does your manuscript really need to be prior to querying agents, and more importantly -- how will you know if your work is ready? In this discussion/workshop, agent Carrie Howland and freelance editor Rebecca Heyman will detail the realities of what it means for a manuscript to pass muster. We'll also look at first pages from session attendees to point out red flags -- and agent-ready writing. Due to time constraints, not all submitted samples will be used in the presentation, but all authors who submit will receive feedback.
