About Agent Sessions

These individual sessions are a rare opportunity to sit in private with a literary agent and present yourself and your work. At your option, you may submit a three-to-five page excerpt from your book, and/or a one page synopsis or query letter. If you submit such pages, the agent will read them in advance of your meeting and be prepared to talk with you about them. You may also opt not to submit in advance but to just present verbally at your session. Whether your goal is to find an agent to take you on as a client, or to get advice on your work and your path to publication from a literary professional, these sessions are an unprecedented chance to fulfill your objective.


You may sign up for up to a maximum of three one-one-one sessions. They are only for registered conference participants and take place between 8:45am and 12:00 noon from Friday through Sunday of the conference. Each session is fifteen minutes in length. After you have registered for your session(s), you will be invited to send what you wish to submit and schedule your appointment.
