Converse Residency: Day 1000

Wow…I will never catch up on everything that’s been happening and the whirl of creative energy around here.  So I’ll just be quick and practical for right now:

Literary agent Jenny Bent (The Bent Agency) visited campus today and gave a great talk about finding an agent and shared some good online resources:

~ list of agents and information about them

~  agent deals and publishing news

~ interviews/features on agents

~ how to write log-lines (those one-sentence descriptions of books that drive us crazy because they’re so hard to get right and we hate summarizing our 500-page novel in one sentence!)


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
