Here's the short version:
Last year I went to this retreat and was blessed to have Kristin Daly (formerly with HarperCollins and now with Balzer & Bray) as my group leader. She was fantastic. I was also able to spend time with and read first pages to the other editors at the retreat--Alexandra Cooper (Simon and Schuster) and Stacy Cantor (Walker). I learned so much from all three of them.
So, who's coming with me?!?
