Literary agent, editor, and writing conference faculty
Sally Apokedak is a literary agent with the Leslie H. Stobbe Literary Agency who wades through thousands of queries from hopeful authors every year. She's also a popular speaker at writing conferences. These things put her in a good position to understand writers' struggles. She aims, in all her courses and conference workshops, to help writers complete manuscripts that will compel agents to offer representation or that will compel readers of self-published works to buy books and turn pages.
