One-On-One

WHAT IS A ONE-ON-ONE? 

A One-On-One session is an opportunity to ask for advice on craft or marketing. Sit down for fifteen minutes with an industry professional without the pressure of a manuscript critique or portfolio review. 

 

CAN I JUST BRING MY MATERIAL?

The editors and agents who have agreed to spend this time have asked for the time to review the material prior to the session. 

 

WHAT MAY I SUBMIT? 

Send in your query, your first page, a printout of your current Facebook page or a few of your most recent blogs; your one year, three year, five year plans as a writer/illustrator, your royalty statement, or recent personal rejection letters, and get some advice on craft or marketing yourself and your work with an industry professional !
