Live Near Austin, TX? Come to the Agents & Editors Conference (June 21-23, 2013)

The annual Agents & Editors Conference put on by the Writers League of Texas is perhaps the premiere literary conference in Texas. I got the chance to teach there in 2008 and was invited back this year (June 21–23, 2013) to be the keynote speaker. So if you’re interested in attending a conference that is 1) located in a great city, and 2) teeming with literary agents looking for writers, then this event is a great one for you. And if you think I’m kidding about all the agents in attendance, just check out the massive list below!

You can read a bunch of conference success stories here (writers who found agents and publishers at this event). Although the big draw to this event is all the attending agents who take meetings with writers, don’t forget that some editors will also be there, and the event has informational writing sessions on topics including how to get published, query letters, e-books, social media/marketing, and more. Plus, Austin is just a great city to roam around in if you like nightlife and local music.
