I was just thinking about this an hour ago. Thanks for letting us know it was up.  (I love this conference.) I'll have to decide what to submit.

Yes, good luck to everyone who applies! The more I think about the one that I attended in October of 2016, the more I realize how much of a role it played in me signing with my agent. But not very directly. After the conference I was reviewing what the various editors were looking for and one stated that she was looking for a "quiet book, perfect for bedtime." Which many editors don't ask for! I remembered I quiet story I had given up on a few years earlier and decided to pull it out and take a second look. After months of revisions, though the editor didn't acquire it, I did send the story out to agents, and that's the one that caught my now-agent's attention!
