Writers Conference Spotlight: 2008 Writers' League of Texas A&E Conference

If you live anywhere remotely close to Austin, I highly suggest going to the quickly-approaching Agents & Editors Conference, hosted by the Writers' League of Texas. It's set for June 20-22. There are hundreds of writers conferences, workshops, retreats and gatherings each year, and most of them are quite good. But I'd say there are a special dozen or so each year that are held in the highest regard because they manage to pull together an insanely big number of literary agents and acquisitions editors who can directly help writers see their work in print.

There are hundreds of writers conferences, workshops, retreats and gatherings each year, and most of them are quite good. But I'd say there are a special dozen or so each year that are held in the highest regard because they manage to pull together an insanely big number of literary agents and acquisitions editors who can directly help writers see their work in print. And this WLT conferenceis one of those special dozen. In my experience traveling across the country, the single biggest opportunity for writers at a conference is the access they have to agents, managers and editors. And this one is a treasure trove of agents.I could list all the literary agents in attendance, but just go ahead and check out the massive list online.
