The First Ten: Getting Editors and Agents to Page 11 … and Beyond
You’ve written a stellar novel and your critique group says that you’re ready to go on submission, but wait … the editor/agent only wants to see the first 10 pages? How can anyone possibly evaluate an entire novel by only reading the first 10 pages!?! But it’s true; and what’s more, this is standard practice throughout the industry. Join us as we explore what it takes to put together a truly masterful submission. We’ll discuss what your first ten pages need to accomplish and what the common mistakes are that you should avoid. Come prepared to take notes.
