I want to take this opportunity to thank all our faculty members who have taken the time to share a blog on this page. As writers knocking on the door of Publishing, it's enlightening to get a glimpse of what it looks like on the inside. In addition, their tips and suggestions for making the most of our conference appointments have been varied and helpful.
However, what has impressed me most is each one's accessibility - their willingness to put us at ease before we meet with them. Reaching out to us in these congenial ways should help us relax, be ourselves, and present our work and concepts to their best advantage. Think having a cup of coffee with a new friend as opposed to waiting for an appointment to have a root canal.
So THANKS, Faculty Bloggers, for welcoming us into and preparing us for our critiques, pitches, and real-time queries. We look forward to meeting you too.
