Hello! So about a month ago, I attended a writers group meeting. During the questionnaire, the host who claims she’s an expert on writing and what agents want, said that agents absolutely will not accept YA stories written in first person, present tense even though most stories are written in this tense and person.
Is this true? I’m not really looking for an agent, but I have been writing a story in present tense and am just curious about the market for when I get my story ready for publication, which is not anytime soon. I would just like to know beforehand just in case.
