I had a couple folks asked me what I’ve seen so far this year at conferences, and I have to admit, I’ve seen some of the best submissions yet.
Folks were prepared.
One-sheets professional, neat, and clean.
Material available to peruse.
Talent was evident.
People had knowledge of the industry in general.
I have to say, I was really pleased. There were a few obvious beginners, but even then, they were prepared to discuss their work and sell themselves.
Many knew and understood the trends today.
More than ever, writers realized the importance of self-marketing as well as a strong manuscript.
All in all, very pleased so far.
Way to go, writers!
