RMMWA Agents Panel
The Rocky Mountain MWA monthly meeting will be held via Zoom on May 14, starting at 6:30 p.m. Mountain time, and will feature literary agents Terrie Wolf and Angie Hodapp. Members will receive the link and password by email, groups.io, and our newsletter. Non-members may send an email to email@example.com to request access. Hope to see you May 14th!
This session will give you complete, step-by-step overview of the traditional publishing process, from the moment you have an idea for a novel to the day you get your rights back from the publisher—and why you may or may not want an agent to guide you through. We’ll cover the query process, what and what not to include in a query letter, and how to nail an in-person pitch. Plus, we’ll dispel some myths and do our best to answer all your burning industry questions!
