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.
