He is seeking: "I'm looking for a select few, outstanding projects that grab me and won't let me go until I place them with a publisher. For fiction, this means a memorable blend of characters, setting, and storyline—delivered with carefully crafted prose. For nonfiction, a unique way of addressing a real need with an authority readers will recognize. And for both, the individual's desire to grow in the craft of writing and to undertake the required discipline to promote their work for others' benefit."
