Comps, Opening Pages & Pitching: Live Q&A with Agent Paige Wheeler
We loved this event! In a cozy, neighborhood potluck-like format, we chatted with agent Paige Wheeler, who talks everything from comps to first pages to how to get your query ready to send–and where to send it.
This episode was recorded in earliest autumn, in front of our Member Lounge audience. Learn more about the Member Lounge here: https://manuscriptacademy.com/member-lounge
