1. The Submission / by Jack Cheng

The manuscript is attached to an email, and that email is sent to editors at various publishing houses. The person sending it? The literary agent. In this episode we hear from my agent, Jessica Craig, about submitting See You in the Cosmos to publishers. Jessica and I reminisce on how we first met, and she tells the story of her path in the industry—from scouting to foreign rights, to becoming a primary agent.
