Writers helping writers since 1972

Access, whether to someone or to something, is a valuable commodity these days. For sports fans, it might be a sideline pass for the Super Bowl, a box seat on the finish line at the Kentucky Derby or an invitation to step inside the ropes at the Ryder Cup. For writers, access is more personal and often means the opportunity to pitch an article or a book proposal to a well-known editor or literary agent. Meaningful access does not always include a chance to pitch, though. Sometimes access means the opportunity to listen and learn.
