HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR MEETING
Go into your meeting prepared with questions. For example, you might ask:
- Is my manuscript developed enough to receive consideration in the marketplace?
- If not, what suggestions do you have?
- What are the next steps you recommend for me as a writer?
The meetings are a great opportunity for direct access to publishing professionals. Individuals who get the most value out of the meetings see them as learning opportunities and information gathering sessions, rather than their “big break.”
Through these meetings you will have the chance to make valuable contacts in the publishing industry, which may serve you now or in the future. If the agent/editor with whom you meet isn’t right for you, they may know someone who is the right fit.
