As a follow-on to She Writes first-ever "We Love New Novelists!" contest, literary agents Sally Wofford-Girand and Eleanor Jackson join editor Sara Weiss and She Writes' Founder Kamy Wicoff to discuss that all-important question for any first-time author: how do you grab your reader's attention in the first 2000 words?  Using the five winners of the contest as examples, but drawing widely on their deep experience in publishing, our panelists will give tips, advice and guidance invaluable to all those with a manuscript in need of a readership.
