This class is only available to registrants of the 2023 Books In Progress Conference.

If you’re serious about your writing, you’ll want to hear some helpful tips before you attend the Books In Progress Conference. We’ll discuss how to pitch to an agent, what to expect from the First Page Critique Panel, and ways networking with the literary community can benefit you.

This seminar is led by one of the conference organizers, Jennifer Hester Mattox. Mattox is an emerging fiction writer and an advocate for Kentucky authors, published and unpublished. Completion of the “Querying Agents: Novels” seminar or a similar class is recommended before you take this prep course. 

This class is suitable for all levels.
