  • Guide to Literary Agents

My Adventures in Myrtle Beach … and Dallas

Categories: Author Platform, Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, Fiction Agents, How To Find A Literary Agent, How To Sell More Books, Writers' Conferences.

I have been presenting at a lot of writing conferences a lot in the past few weeks, and have recently presented at writers conferences in both South Carolina and Texas. Both were a lot of fun. I am a huge advocate of writers conferences, and I still believe they are a great opportunity to meet publishing pros, make writer friends for life, and get educated about the craft and business of writing. They are also excellent opportunities on learning how to find a literary agent, and how to build your author platform.

(See a large list of writers conferences.)

 

2011 SOUTH CAROLINA WRITERS WORKSHOP (MYRTLE BEACH)

This event, held on a Hilton along the beach, is a pure joy to be included in. The faculty is large, and about a dozen agents are in attendance talking to writers. I attended in 2009 and ran into a few people I met two years ago. If you have an opportunity to attend the SCWW in the future, I highly recommend it.

I Will Speak At These Great Writing Events in 2014:

 

TRINITY WRITERS WORKSHOP (TWW) ONE-DAY SEMINAR

This one-day event, held in Hurst TX (between Fort Worth and Dallas), was put on by the Trinity Writers Workshop and organizer Sharon Owen. The midsized group was very nice and very supportive of each other — just a great community of writers rooting for one another. It was wonderful to see. If you live in the area and are looking to meet writers and work on your manuscript, find the group online here.
