Writers' Roundup: March 26
March 26, 2010
If you’re new here, Writers’ Roundup is a weekly Friday feature with links to blog posts, news stories, etc. about writing, travel, journalism and anything else I find useful and entertaining. It’s the best of my Google Reader and Twitter links!
What have I found this week?
- Travel bloggers: TBEX, or Travel Blog Exchange, is holding its annual weekend event July 26-27 in New York City. Looks like some cool panels and guests — might be worth attending.
- At Guide to Literary Agents, author James Dashner chimes in with 7 Things I’ve Learned So Far — one of the best so far in the series. Networking is key to getting breaks in publishing, he says. And, I’d say, in life.
- How long will it take to land an agent? Get your first book contract? See your first check? Literary agent Rachelle Gardner has the answers.
- At Getting Past the Gatekeeper, an anonymous literary agent has good ideas about strategic querying.
I’m in D.C. for a few weeks, scouting jobs and places to live. Hoping to make the move permanent soon! Will keep you posted.
