My agent is teaching a Webinar!

Mary Kole is one of the first people who donated her time to WriteOnCon. When the conference was just a thought, we went to her with questions and ideas–she answered each and every one of them, and then made suggestions of her own.

On September 23rd, she’s teaching a webinar about writing for children with the folks at Writer’s Digest.

Here’s what she has to say about it:

You can enroll by clicking here. It’s the next best thing for all of you who have been waiting to see me live…and you don’t have to leave your pajamas! If you have to miss the live event itself and can’t call in, you can always register for the webinar and have access to the recording of it for one full year.

I pledge to answer all questions posed to me, either during the seminar or later, in writing, and, as a registered student, you will get a critique of the first 500 words of MG or YA novel or the first 300 words of your picture book manuscript, depending on what you’re writing. If I get a good turnout for this webinar, Writer’s Digest will host me again, and  you know how much I love getting teaching opportunities, so tell your friends!

That’s right–if you register for her webinar, you get a 500 word critique (300 if it’s a picture book) done by Mary herself!

I spend a lot of time looking at Mary’s critique notes, and let me tell you–they are amazing. When she finds a problem with your work, she doesn’t just tell you it’s bad. She tells you why, and then gives you the tools to figure out how to fix it. I’m a better writer because of Mary, and if she gives you notes on your manuscript, you will be, too.

So what the heck are you waiting for? Go sign up!

  1. Wow, this sounds like an opportunity I can’t pass up! Thanks for sharing it and a huge thank you to Mary for doing this!

  2. Thanks for posting this webinar info. I’ve been writing down stories that I make up for my children and some people have said that I should get them published. But I don’t have a clue how to get started with all of that and don’t know that they are really worthy of all that. This sounds like a great webinar with lots of info that I need.

  3. Mary Kole is AMAZING. My few interactions with her have been very rewarding. She would be my DREAM agent.

    Was that *too* much? Should I be embarrassed by my own groupie-like behavior?


    1. @Margo Kelly, haha NO!!! She’s SO freakin’ awesome that she should be EVERYONE’S dream agent 🙂

  4. Thanks for this great post, Jamie. Your agent sounds wonderful, and I’m sure the webinar will be so beneficial. I am a happy, new follower.

    1. @Roxy, I hope it’s FANTASTIC! And, welcome! (So, where’d you come from) 🙂
