THE WRITERS’ LEAGUE OF TEXAS
2014 AGENTS & EDITORS CONFERENCE
June 27 – 29, 2014
Hyatt Regency Austin
208 Barton Springs Road
Austin, TX 78704
The Writers' League of Texas Agents & Editors Conference is THE place to meet agents and learn the latest trends in publishing.
Where else can a writer network with industry professionals, learn about publishing tips and trends, and improve one's craft, all within walking distance of a world-class arts and music district and the largest urban bat colony in North America?
And did we mention the food? The margaritas? The beautiful lake?
Not only can the Writers' League of Texas Agents & Editors Conference boast 20 years' worth of success stories, it also has the advantage of being set in one of the most beautiful, artistic, and fun-loving locations in the world. If the breakout sessions with top-tier agents and editors don't inspire you, perhaps the sparkling river will. Or the millions of bats that take flight at sunset.
And did we mention the local food, drink, and music?
The Writers' League of Texas Agents & Editors Conference is for writers at every stage of their career. Beginners can learn more about this mystifying industry and prepare themselves for the journey ahead. Those with completed manuscripts can pitch to agents and get feedback on their manuscripts from professional editors. Published writers can learn about market trends and network with rising stars in the world of writing. No matter what your market, genre, or level, our conference can benefit you.
We are currently finalizing the programming for the 2014 conference. At this time, we're excited to already have confirmations from several top-notch industry professionals, from both major publishing houses (including Simon & Schuster, Scholastic, Penguin Random House, Hachette, and more!) and world-class agencies (including WME, Janklow & Nesbit, Folio, Sterling Lord Literistic, and more!).
Preregistration is now open. Register early and receive email updates as programming develops. In the next few weeks we expect to have an exciting announcement regarding our keynote luncheon speaker. Stay tuned for more!
