I am in charge of the gigantic Agent Pitch Slam at the Writer's Digest Conference in New York, January 21–23, 2011. And let me tell you: This promises to be great. I want to present to you our current lineup of agents for the slam. 57 are coming, and more may join.

Did you know: At our conference in 2008, two agents taking pitches—Janet Reid and Andrea Hurst—not only signed clients at the event, but went on to negotiate six-figure deals for those writers? True story. And then at our 2009 pitch slam in NYC, agent Jamie Brenner signed a memoirist whose book is now published. You can see everything about the conference here.

I can't easily list all the names of the agents here, so check out the entire list on our site, including what fiction, nonfiction and children's categories each one is seeking. I think a few even look for scripts and graphic novels, as well.

The Agent Pitch Slam works like this: You have two full hours to pitch as many agents as you can. Agents who like your pitch ask for you to email/mail them a sample or proposal. Easy peasy. Sign up for our awesome conference here!
