Do you want to meet agents, editors, and network with industry professionals?
Attendees can take advantage of ProCritiques™ where part of your work is read and critiqued by advanced submission to professional editors, and Masters ProCritiques™ where part of your work is read and reviewed by literary agents who know all the right publishers. There is a fee for the Advanced Submissions program. This is a popular, cost-effective way to receive on-on-one constructive, professional feedback on your manuscript to increase your chances for success.
Free Pitch Sessions
You can also meet with literary agents and publishers looking for new talent with polished manuscripts at the free ProConsultations (pitch sessions by appointment.) This is NOT a speed dating program, rather an opportunity to have a professional, confidential, relaxed, 1-on-1 conversation. Attendees apply each morning of the conference, noting that space is limited by the schedule of each agent.
We also offer an unique informative seminar each day
to help prepare for your actual meeting with the "agents and publishers du jour."

Keynote Speaker Luncheons
You will also enjoy a themed reception Friday night with no-host bar, a Keynote Speaker Luncheon on both Saturday and Sunday*, plus have opportunities to network with attendees, celebrity authors, and honored faculty after each session. This is a relaxed social environment where you can network with other writers and learn more about the craft and/or business of writing from an industry expert while you enjoy a complimentary lunch with beverages (included in your registration). You will hear a prominent industry expert or panel each day.
