Well, normally when I refer to Miss Genoese there are declarations of war floating around cause she adores Mr Clooney almost as much as I; however, this time, truce.
She has posted an excellent piece on pitching editors at conferences.
Read it again.
Know it, do it, be it.
And if you meet Miss G at a conference, tell her HANDS OFF MR CLOONEY!
