Short, because comp is the shortened version of the term, “comparable” or even “comparative.” And in my post over at The Muffin today, I explain a little something something about comps: how they work in general, and how they can work for you. If you have a manuscript–from picture book to adult fiction, including non-fiction–then understanding comps can be very helpful in your pitch and query journey.
And sweet, because WriteOnCon (a FREE online children’s writers conference, created for writers, by writers) has announced their list of agents and opened their forum. That means that you can post your query, or read other queries, and get ready for the fun ‘n games to begin.
So read up on comps and apply to WriteonCon. (And that’s another two things, thank you very much!)
