Today I received a phone call from the organisers of the 'Write around the Murray Festival' to be held in Albury next month.
A session called 'Moment with a Mentor' asked for applications from authors who would like to get advice on how to get a manuscript published. Part of the process was to submit a ten page extract from a completed manuscript and upon selection, a $25 fee would be requested. I was one of six applicants chosen and will have the opportunity to spend 30 minutes with Jenny Darling of Jenny Darling Associates, one of Australia's leading literary agencies.
I have never met a literary agent and am totally looking forward to this experience.
