||Meet literary agents and editors. Network with industry professionals.
Through our ProCritique™ program, you can submit portions of an unfinished fiction, nonfiction, or screenplay in advance of the conference for review by professional editors, or through the Masters ProCritiques™ program to literary agents and publishers for a read and review. This advance submission program is
a popular, cost-effective way to receive on-on-one constructive, professional
your manuscript to increase your chances for success.
WC2 also offers ProConsultations,
which are an opportunity for authors with completed, polished manuscripts to pitch literary
agents, acquisition editors, and publishers in search of new talent. We even offer an informative seminar most days
with the "agents du jour" to help prepare for your actual meeting. This is NOT a speed dating program.
|Attendees may apply each day at the ProCritque Desk, noting that space is limited by the availability schedule of each agent, and the appointment calendar may be full after the first day. Yes, WC2 conference attendees have signed with literary agents and earned publishing deals.
