Registered attendees have the the option to add-on an one-on-one Author/Agent meeting. The appointments are 15 minutes and are $50.00. Click on the agent’s name for more information. Email email@example.com to set up a meeting.
Literary agents represent authors to publishers and one of the most important things they do is become an author’s advocate — before, during and after the sale of your book. They provide guidance and valuable advice because they are a wealth of knowledge. They can help to negotiate book deals and contracts and simplify the publishing process because they have excellent industry contacts and good working relationships.
Attending a writers’ conference is one of the best ways to initiate contact with a literary agent. Remember they represent authors, so who you are is just as important as what you write. Attending the conference demonstrates your willingness to grow as a writer and to network.
Time slots are first come. Authors will meet with agents for a 15-minute appointment throughout the day. Included with the meeting is a review of the first ten (10) pages of you manuscript (12pt/double spaced). Registered attendees may “add-on” this option for $50.00 in advance. Registered Attendees will Receive an Email with Add-on Details. Then the attendee will contact Rochester Writers to select an appointment time. Both morning and afternoon time slots will be available. Manuscript must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 14.However, you may schedule an appointment without those items to discuss your book idea.
