If you’re looking for an agent or wanting to learn more about what the heck is going on in publishing, look no farther than the Writers’ League of Texas Agents Conference June 22-24 right here in our fair city of Austin! The conference has a stellar lineup of agents and editors (including keynote speaker Alan Rinzler and the wonderful Beena Kamlani, among others).
YA authors should definitely sign on for the YA A to Z track for an insider’s perspective from an outstanding lineup of published authors and instructors.
The conference is a perfect opportunity to learn about publishing, get inspired, and make some valuable contacts. But perhaps one of the best-kept secrets about the conference — and other such gatherings, come to think of it — is the chance to meet fellow writers and build a support system that can help you keep going.
I’ll be there, moderating a couple of panels and meeting with writers to critique their query letters. And from my past experience producing the conference, my best tip to attendees is this: KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON!
So don’t delay — sign up TODAY!
