Fourth Annual Atlanta Writers Conference


Tonight I’m off to the first part of the Fourth Annual Atlanta Writers Conference, in the Westin Atlanta Airport. The event is run and hosted by the Atlanta Writers Club. If you’re a writer in the Atlanta area and not yet a member, I encourage you to join! The writers critique group I am part of is also an off shoot of this larger club, which hosts many fabulous events and talks throughout the year.

On Saturday, May 21, 2011 the Atlanta Writers Club will present its fourth annual Atlanta Writers Conference. The goal of this conference is to give you access to five top literary agents–and an editorial manager from an independent publisher–who will respond to your pitches, critique the work you submit in advance, and educate you about the current environment of the publishing industry and the likely trends for the near future. You could be offered a contract based on the materials you’ve submitted: several AWC members have signed with conference agents or continue to work with them preparing their books for representation. You might be asked to send additional pages or an entire manuscript for their review. You certainly will know more about how your work is perceived by industry professionals, and you’ll gain valuable experience interacting one-on-one with them.

Tonight’s event is a three hour workshop with guest agent Katherine Sands of the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency titled The Reinvented Writer, followed by a social mixer for the club.

See everyone there!
