📚🎧Podcast: Get An Agent’s Attention From The First Page

This may be our new favorite podcast format! We found ourselves grinning as we recorded, and are so happy to share this with you.

Welcome to our Mystery Agent episode. We asked you, our lovely writers, to send in your query and first page—and asked a wonderful literary agent to choose a lucky writer for a live consultation.

What follows is the joy-filled, insightful conversation between them, covering pitching, character development, and more.

In this episode, listen as agent Larissa Melo Pienkowski (Jill Grinberg Literary Management) suggests small changes that make a huge difference. (And yes, we like the author so much, we’re already placing bets on her publishing success.) With a focus on first page, query, character, and the nuances of this age group, author and agent work together to bring this submission packet to the next level.

Stay tuned–we’ll have more Mystery Agent podcasts coming soon!

All best,
Jessica & Julie
