Vegas, baby. Do I seriously need to go on? Besides the electric and exciting locale, the conference pulls in a boatlet of publishing pros and purposefully keeps attendance to a certain point, so there is plenty of writer-agent interaction.
WHO WILL BE THERE?
Andrea Brown of Andrea Brown Literary, Katharine Sands of Sarah Jane Freymann Literary, Mollie Glick of Foundry Literary + Media, Jim McCarthy of Dystel & Goderich, Ellen Pepus of Siganture Literary, Lori Perkins (L. Perkins Associates), Toni Plummer (editor, Thomas Dunne Books) and Ken Sherman (Ken Sherman Associates). That doesn’t include the author-presenters! Check out the Web site for more presenter names.
The contest deadline has passed. Note: This event is big on pitching — meaning that all speakers in attendance usually are taking a lot of pitches and having plenty of facetime with writers. That’s music to a writer’s ears if they want to meet with agents up close.
If you’re free in two weeks, sign up for the conference!
