I signed up to go to this just the other day. Is anyone else here in the general Colorado or Wyoming area going to be attending? The fee is a little high, and it's not specifically genre, but they look to have some excellent workshops.
And because I'm a crazy, ridiculous person, I've signed up for an agent pitch session. I do have confidence in my novel, but I've never done anything approaching this before. So I'm sure that once I do some research, I'll be back again to post about that.
Thanks for asking, aspirit. It actually went quite well. I got into see two agents (one just who happened to have an open space by chance), and both were interested in seeing partials of my novel.
So I'm pretty excited about that, and am now frantically working through my first five chapters. I believe partials are generally three chapters (yes? no?), but one agent did specifically ask for five.
Exciting, but much work. I shall now go post in the Novels section to ask for extra eyes before I send anything in...
