Legal considerations will always keep me from agreeing to requests like this one:
"I am a young writer and artist and have been in process of writing a series of graphic novels over the past few years. I have been struggling with the visual presentation of it, though I have gotten better, and finding an audience for my work that will enable me to focus on writing graphic novels as a career. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to meet with you and share my work to date. I am sure that any advice you give me will help me along my way."
I wished the young creator well, but that's all I can do.
