Funny You Should Ask! Ask the Agents (& Editor) Anything.

What does it really mean when my submissions draw personalized rejections? When is it OK to follow up with an agent who asked to see my manuscript? How am I ever going to overcome my fear of sharing my work, or my writer-jealousy, or my unsupportive partner? Literary Agent Barbara Poelle of the Irene Goodman Agency has been fielding these questions and many more with hilarity and candor in WD magazine’s popular “Funny You Should Ask” column. On this panel, she gathers some like-minded publishing friends and dares you: ask them ANYTHING.
