Lucinda has a lot of energy and her passion to help you succeed is extraordinary! Her team is also dedicated to keeping you focused and on task.

“[I greatly appreciated the personalized feedback I received on my own piece.  Connor and Lucinda were excellent at facilitating and answering our group’s many questions. As an emerging writer who is still in the early phases of my career, I recommend Lucinda Literary’s workshops and one-on-one meetings to help take the mystery out of getting an agent’s attention and maximizing your chances for success. I look forward to participating with more opportunities in the future.
—Kristy Jackson
