Agents Taking Pitches at WD’s 2008 Conference in Los Angeles!

This is one of probably many upcoming posts about Writer’s Digest Books’ upcoming writers conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday, May 28, 2008.  WD Books always hosts an awesome one-day conference the day before BookExpo America begins.

Last week, I emailed plenty of literary agents and script managers about the conference and asked them to partake in the Pitch Slam, where agents, managers and editors sit down to take pitches from writers one-on-one.  The slam is the biggest event of its kind.  Last year at the conference, we had 60 agents and editors before we cut it off because of space issues.  So far, here is the current list of confirmed agents:
