Canceled: Agents, Query Letters, and Rejection (Writers-in-Residence)

18 yrs+

We’ll chat about what every writer should know before getting traditionally published. How to find an agent, how to write a query letter, and how to handle rejection (because everyone gets rejected!). All three of these, for the most part, are necessary evils of writing – the good, the bad, the ugly and the truth of it all.
