I just got back from the 2012 San Francisco Writers Conference over Presidents’ Day Weekend, and the event was fantastic. The SFWC, which is co-sponsored by WD, is famous for its number of agents, editors and authors who attend. The San Fran area is rich with writing talent, and the SFWC brings in a lot of area speakers. If you live anywhere in the area, I seriously recommend checking out the event for 2013.
(See a large list of writers conferences.)
I got to moderate two gigantic literary agent panels — that featured 13 and 14 agents, respectively. That is a great indicator of just how big this conference truly is. Just looking at the photo above, I see agents (Left to right) Taylor Martindale of Full Circle Literary, Jody Rein of Jody Rein Literary, Katharine Sands of Sarah Jane Freymann Literary, and Ted Weinstein of Ted Weinstein Literary.
