2017 Agents & Editors Conference

One-on-One Consultations with an Agent or Editor 

About Consultations

The Writers' League of Texas 2017 Agents & Editors Conference will feature more than 20 top-tier literary agents and editors from major publishing entities--representing a wide array of genres and markets. Meetings with both agents or editors are 10-minute verbal pitches about your project. We strongly recommend that you look over the bios of featured faculty, visit their agency and publisher pages, and do additional research to familiarize yourself with the agents and editors before you fill out the preference or purchase forms.
