YouTube Collab with JENNA MORECI:
Are you looking to improve your time management skills as a writer? If you are struggling to hit your writing goals or stick to a writing schedule or if you need a way to better manage your author platform, stay tuned for this special collab with Jenna Moreci.
This time management collab is broken into two videos:
Have you written a manuscript, but you’re not sure if it’s ready for the query trenches? Or maybe you have queried literary agents and you have yet to receive a partial or full request on your manuscript. Or have you self-published a novel and aren’t getting the reader reaction you’d hoped for? In this episode of the Kiingo Podcast, we discuss nine red flags in editing as well as address the following questions:
- What are some red flags that editors look for?
- What makes a character 3-dimensional?
- What makes for the best stakes in a story?
- How do we integrate worldbuilding cleanly and seamlessly into a story?
- Do you recommend starting a story on the protagonist’s worst day?
- What are some techniques for creating interesting hooks?
iWriterly was listed among Silk + Smoke Magazine’s 5 essential podcasts and vlogs for writers, along with The Writer Files, Jenna Moreci, The Story Studio, and The Script Shop.

YouTube Collab with Brittany Wang

Book Review | Guest Judge
In August 2018,Meg joined Reading Review Wars as a guest judge for Jenna Moreci’s The Savior’s Champion.
At Reading Review Wars, there are two reviewers for a book (him and her) who each rank plot, characters, and world building and provide an argument for that numbered rating. The judge (Meg) selects a winner in each category, which will then decide who wins the war (him or her).
Curious of Meg’s final verdict regarding the two reviews (him vs. her) of Jenna Moreci’s The Saviors Champion? (There’s a whole lot of fangirling of this book going around!) Click the link below to see who won the “war”—aka who she believes had the stronger argument.
Meg LaTorre of iWriterly participates in Bethany Atazadeh’s video, When I Tell People I’m a Writer, along with many of your favorite AuthorTubers, including Mandi Lynn, Brooke Passmore, Natalia Leigh, and more.

iWriterly joins Natalia Leigh, indie author of HIGH BORN and WAY OF SPEARS, for the second video in a two-part collab on self-publishing vs. traditional publishing. In this video, Natalia asks Meg LaTorre questions about the traditional publishing process: things to avoid doing when seeking literary representation, helpful writing resources, author platform, and more.
Literary agent apprentice Meg LaTorre-Snyder discusses her role at Corvisiero Literary Agency and answers listener questions about the querying process. Should you personalize a query? Should writers worry about chasing trends? What should authors know when signing with an agent? How long should a “revise and resubmit” take to complete? Meg answers these questions and many more to help aspiring authors polish their manuscripts, brave the query trenches, and ultimately gain representation.
In this three-part series, learn why literary agents pass on a middle grade (MG) fantasy query or manuscript (or request more pages) from three different literary agents.
The September 2017 agent panel includes Emily S. Keyes of Fuse Literary, Ben Grange of L. Perkins Agency, and your friendly neighborhood Oxford comma police. Er… Meg.
