Discovery Day: view from the agents

Discovery Day 7
by Anna Davis Events, From the Agents, Guest Blog

We loved meeting the writers who came to Discovery Day. We were really struck by all the good writing we saw, and by the strength of so many of the ideas pitched to us. Yes, the writers were nervous at the prospect of pitching, but often there was confidence there too, and professionalism. I don’t know quite what we’d expected, but we all came away feeling energized and SO so motivated about the hunt for new talent that we’re all engaged in. Thank you, writers, for coming to meet us!

Here’s a piece I wrote on Discovery Day for Bookbrunch.
