Just got back from New York (2009). The first-ever Writer's Digest Conference: The Business of Getting Published went very well (and was, dare I say, a success?). Everyone seemed pleased with the event and I got to meet one-on-one with more than a dozen people to look over queries and first pages.
I moderated two agent panels, and those went very well. A big thanks to the seven participating literary agents. They were appropriately mobbed after talking (see pic above).
Would you like to hear what the agents had to say? It was all blogged! Every session at the conference was live-blogged by a WD staffer and is online here! You will see about 100 posts for the entire conference and there are about 8 or so about the agent panels. Look at the list of posts on the right side and look for ones starting with "Agents" or "Ask the Agents."
