A friend asked me recently if I knew any agents who might be interested in her memoir. She did an online course with Gotham Writers' Workshop during the lockdown, which kept her sane, and she doesn't want to self-publish.

It got me thinking about how I got my first agent in my 20s, so I thought it would be useful to share my #strategy…(passion, persistence, writing lots of emails), which paid off eventually. 

A deviation from the usual #newsletter format for Easter - and a new banner alert! I've made something in hot pink and grey - my two fave colours, with interesting colour psychology.

I love messing around in Canva 😁 - deeply meditative!

Do you still read business books or do you get all the advice you need from Twitter threads!? It's an interesting one.
