I've Always Wanted to Write A Book -  a summation of key topics for anyone who has ever wanted to write a book

 Cultivated from conversations with other established literary agents, as well as her own experiences, this presentation is best for new writers wanting an overview of the writing and publishing process. Through examples and anecdotes, Marisa shares with the audience a broad look inside what it takes to write a book, research a literary agent, query their agents of choice, and land a traditional publisher.
