Conference Spotlight: The South Carolina Writers Workshop (Oct. 21-23, 2011) Has 11 Agents Taking Pitches

What’s better than being on the South Carolina beach in October? Being on the South Carolina beach in October pitching agents who seek new clients — that’s what. If this sounds appealing, I highly suggest you check out the 2011 South Carolina Writers Workshop, held Oct. 21-23 in Myrtle Beach, SC. Eleven agents will be there. I’ve presented at the writers conference before and loved the event. Keep reading to learn more. It’s a great chance to learn how to find a literary agent.

SOUTH CAROLINA DETAILS

The conference is from Oct. 21-23, 2011, at The Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. There are basic conference packages and additional Friday intensive workshops. This is an annual conference that’s one of the largest of its kind in the Southeast and draws large attendance numbers. I know that, in the past, it has drawn plenty of science fiction agents.

WHO WILL BE THERE?

I will be in attendance presenting several workshops and being a query letter editor, including a panel with my agent (AGENT VS. WRITER!) that will be a blast. The following agents will be there:

* Bernadette Baker-Baughman, Victoria Sanders & Associates
* Stephen Barr, Writers House
* Alyssa Eisner Henkin, Trident Media Group
* Melissa Jeglinski, The Knight Agency
* Mollie Glick, Foundry Media
* Sarah LaPolla, Curtis Brown, Ltd.
* Jessica Regel, Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency
* Eddie Schneider, JABberwocky Literary Agency
* Jon Sternfeld, The Irene Goodman Literary Agency
* Stephanie Sun, Weed Literary
* Sorche Fairbank, Fairbank Literary Representation

WHAT ELSE?

It’s on the beach in October in South Carolina? That’s pretty darn nice. This conference has “Slush Fests,” where you can submit your work to be read aloud while agents and editors comment on it and remark when they would stop reading.Also, there is an Open Mic event.
