Bestselling author Meg Waite Clayton says, “I didn’t start out being a novelist, I started out as someone who wanted to be a novelist but had no idea how one went about that – much less any faith in my own talent.” Stay for lunch to rub elbows with the agents and acquisition editors as Meg shares her inspiring and persistent journey to the publication of her outstanding books.
Note: Must be registered to attend
