WD’s January Conference in NYC Will Have 60+ Agents Taking Pitches!

The Writer’s Digest Conference is set for January 2123, 2011 in New York City, and there will be more than 60 literary agents taking pitches at our gigantic Agent Pitch Slam. The WD pitch slams are famous for featuring insane numbers of agents. Check out the conference website here and meet me in NYC!

Did you know: At our conference in 2008, we know of at least three (and there could be plenty more) writers who found their representatives at the event. And what’s more: Two of those writers signed six-figure deals with publishers within the year, through the help of their new agent. I think you get the point: WD conferences are rare, large, and awesome—and people are getting agents at our events.


Besides the pitch slam, there are days worth of instructive sessions taught by authors and editors. All info is on the conference website. The big event, of course, is the Slam. Here are the attending literary agents. To see what every agent wants in terms of fiction and nonfiction, see their full bios online here.
