Description: Agent rejections are almost never a mystery. Rejection letters offer clues to what is really going on, and someone schooled in understanding those clues can help you decipher them and determine what you need to do to get to YES. Jennie Nash, founder and CEO of Author Accelerator, is in the unique position of seeing hundreds of rejection letters every year. In this webinar, she will explain what to look for in your rejections, how to know whether your query letter is the problem or the pages themselves, and how to know if you should keep pitching or regroup and take a different tack. As part of her presentation, Jennie will do a live Rejection Audit of three writers who are getting NOs and want to learn how they can get to YES.

Submission requirement: **SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED** Jennie will workshop three writer's rejection letters live on this webinar. To be considered for a live rejection audit, please be prepared to submit the following materials by Monday, November 25th: your query letter; between 5 and 10 rejection letters; and if the rejections came after a request of pages, the first chapter of your manuscript. You may redact your name on all documents, but the description and content of the story will be made public. By submitting your materials, you consent to allow Jennie to share your materials and critique them. Instructions on how to submit can be found in your registration confirmation email. Submission instructions will be included in your registration confirmation email.
