Snagging an agent: How to write a stand-out submission and get signed

After years of agonising over a manuscript, you’d think the hard part would be over. Bad news: now you’ve got to convince someone to read it, then publish it. Everyone dreads the thought of languishing in the slush pile, but the reality is that, unless you’re a networking superstar, that’s where you’ll stay…unless you have an agent.

In this conference, Haylee Nash will talk about:

  • How to find the right agent for you
  • Agent approach protocol
  • Submission dos and don’ts
  • Hot genres and what the bestseller list can tell you
