Attending a literary conference? Here are some tips.

If you are going to attend a conference where you will be pitching to literary agents or editors, you want to make the most of your time and money. Hopefully if you are attending a conference, you’ve already done a bit of research into the agents who are attending. But what should you be looking for? How do you know who to pitch?

Beyond researching each agent’s interests and previous clients, knowing a bit about the submission guidelines will help you make an informed choice about whose pitch slots to sign up for.

To learn more about how to maximize your time at a conference, and pitch the agents you aren’t able to talk to, subscribe to the Forum.

During the month of February, I am offering a deal for writers who join the Forum with a friend! Sign up together and you’ll each get $10 off your subscription! You’ll receive a year of the Forum for $25 each, and $25 off any other editing services, such as a query or chapter review. 

To take advantage of this deal, please contact me with the names and email addresses of the two writers who would like to sign up. Do not sign up via the website as you will automatically be charged the full price.
