Footnotes: 5 Articles on Knowing When to Submit

“The most valuable of talents is that of never
using two words when one will do.”

Footnotes is a recurring series
on the GLA blog where I pick a subject and provide several interesting
articles on said topic.

3. Ready to Query? Agent Jessica Faust suggests a good edit before you touch that send button.

4. Is it soup yet?
