Comadre University Workshop Teleconference

From Marcela Landres:

WHAT: Comadre University Workshop Teleconference, sponsored by
Las Comadres,

How to Hire (or Fire) an Agent
Hiring the wrong agent can wreak havoc on your writing career for years to
come. Protect yourself by learning how to choose the right one. If you're
already chosen the wrong one, learn how to conduct a graceful "divorce."
Topics to be discussed include: when to hire an agent, where to find one,
identifying red flags, signs of a keeper, and how to tell when it's time to
let go.

WHEN: Tuesday, June 21, 8 p.m.- 9 p.m. EST

TESTIMONIAL: "It was so nice to meet you at the Unicorn Writers' conference.
My best friend, Stephanie Robinson, and I are co-authoring a children's YA
novel. We both agreed that your workshop was very informative and really
made the event especially worthwhile. The raw, real information that you
shared with the group was so refreshing. It is so rare to listen to a
professional that clearly loves what they do and can offer valuable
information that is truly helpful."
