Conference Spotlight: Muse & The Marketplace

Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, Writers' Conferences.
A very cool writers’ conference coming up you should be aware of is Boston’s own Muse & the Marketplace, held April 25-26, 2009. Keep reading to find out some details about this awesome event.

DETAILS:

This conference is likely the biggest one in New England all year round, if that tells you anything right off the bat. Plenty of agents will be there looking for writers, and there are opportunities to mix and mingle and pitch.

There are presentations and seminars galore. Authors and editors teach, and everyone is on publishing panels. Personally, I will be instructing authors on book proposal writing and writing a query to agents.

WHO WILL BE THERE?

Who won’t?

Miriam Altshuler (Miriam Altshuler Literary Agency); Julie Barer (Barer Literary Agency);  Eve Bridburg (Zachary Shuster Harmsworth Literary); Michelle Brower (Wendy Sherman Associates); Sorche Fairbank (Fairbank Literary Representation); Katherine Fausset (Curtis Brown, Ltd.);  Mollie Glick (Foundry Media); Jeanne Leiby (Editor, The Southern Review); Dan Mandel (Sanford J. Greenburger Associates); Kirsten Manges (Kirsten Manges Literary); PJ Mark  (McCormick & Williams); Kate McKean (Howard Morhaim Literary); Rob McQuilkin (Lippincott Massie McQuilkin); Asya Muchnick (Editor, Little Brown); Katharine Sands (Sarah Jane Freymann Literary); Mitchell Waters (Curtis Brown, Ltd.); Elisabeth Weed (Weed Literary); Lane Zachary (Zachary Shuster Harmsworth Literary)

WHAT ELSE?

There is the Manuscript Mart feature to the conference, where an agent will critique some of your work for a fee, but believe that may be sold out.  Nonetheless, there will be some other last-minute deals to take a look out, such as my very own “Walk-In Query Clinic” where I just sit down and take a look at a query in real time.

If you’re free in two weeks, sign up for the conference! To book a hotel reservation, seek out the amazing Park Plaza Hotel.

    Manuscript Mart IS sold out. I believe that it happened with the first week. Then, they added more agents and sold out of those two. (Mollie Glick sold out over the weekend that registration was open.)
