“ It was nice to hear the speaker's journey of finding an agent and publisher. It was interesting to learn the amount of rejections received before an agent, and also the number of draft revisions requested by the publisher. It provided me with a lot of insight and also encouraged me to not take rejection personally, but to keep pressing forward. I was reminded of the need to attend conferences to pitch my stories to agents and of having a good query letter. Great information for me as a newbie. Enjoyed the networking and brainstorming afterwards, too, as usual. ”
