SOUTH CAROLINA DETAILS

The conference is from Oct. 21–23, 2011, at The Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. There are basic conference packages and additional Friday intensive workshops. This is an annual conference that's one of the largest of its kind in the Southeast and draws large attendance numbers. I know that, in the past, it has drawn plenty of science fiction agents.

WHO WILL BE THERE?

I will be in attendance presenting several workshops and being a query letter editor, including a panel with my agent (AGENT VS. WRITER!) that will be a blast. The following agents will be there:

* Bernadette Baker-Baughman, Victoria Sanders & Associates
* Stephen Barr, Writers House
* Alyssa Eisner Henkin, Trident Media Group
* Melissa Jeglinski, The Knight Agency
* Mollie Glick, Foundry Media

It's on the beach in October in South Carolina? That's pretty darn nice. This conference has "Slush Fests," where you can submit your work to be read aloud while agents and editors comment on it and remark when they would stop reading.Also, there is an Open Mic event.
