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
