Registered attendees have the the option to add-on an one-on-one Author/Agent meeting. The appointments are 15 minutes and are $49.00. Click on the agent’s name for more information.
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. Registered attendees may “add-on” this option for $49.00 in advance. Registered Attendees will Receive an Email with Add-on Details. Authors should bring a query letter, synopsis, and the first few pages of their manuscript. However, the most important part of the meeting is to “meet the agent” and to present your book idea to them.
Please Note: You MUST be a Registered Attendee, age 18 or older, to Add-On the Agent Appointment.
