Saturday, June 27th, 9:30am-12:30pm
It’s hard to know when a query and first pages are working! That’s why it’s so important to have face time with an agent or editor. Join us for a personal critique with agent Ammi-Joan Paquette of Erin Murphy Literary Agency. We will break in the middle to have a light brunch and hear what Joan and Carter have to say about the do’s and don’ts of querying and more.
