2014 November First Impressions Event

Our First Impressions Event was a wonderful success! Susan Kochan, Associate Editorial Director of Putnam Children's at Penguin Group USA and Jennie Dunham of the Dunham Literary, Inc. gave their first impression on our attendees first manuscript page or query letter on Saturday, November 15, 2014.  

Besides learning what to do and what not to do on your first page or query letter, attendees enjoyed fellowship by reuniting with past writer friends or conference colleagues over light refreshments.

Special submission information has been emailed to all conference attendees. Please follow the instructions regarding marking your envelope and note the submission deadline.

 "The First Impressions Event was a rousing success. So much helpful information and constructive critiques from Susan & Jennie." Doreen Tango Hampton, 2014 attendee.

Our next event will be June 13, 2015 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Poughkeepsie. To receive updates about current or future conferences, sign up for our newsletter

  1. This really is a perfectly acceptable solution to proceed -- as long as you do not pay someone else to write the entire point for you. Should you do that, there's a very good chance you'll get caught. although paying for essays isn't right for quality and on time writing services with responsible cost.

    1. I agree, it is never acceptable to pass off someone else's writing as your own. At this event, the writers are submitting their own material to get an opinion, in this case, from an editor and an agent, on how to make their writing better.

      Thanks for your comment!

  2. Online education is increasingly on the public's mind with many pursuing higher education during the current tough economic times. Accompanying the growth of the for profit online universities, serving these students, is the open source education movement. This movement, headed by MIT OpenCourseWare and the Khan Academy, seeks to revolutionize education by offering free content to anyone with an internet connection. Bill Gates said in an interview that he believes that within five years the best education will come from the web. Coming from a man who has made billions from investing in innovation, such predictions carry an enormous amount of weight.academic writing
