• Meet top agents, editors, and industry professionals through one-on-one consultations and general receptions. A 2017 attendee said, “Out of several NYC conferences, Sewanee, and AWP experiences over many years, this is the most productive agent exposure I've experienced at a writing conference via the meetings, receptions, and panel access."

• Learn what agents expect, want, love, and hate.

• Hear success stories, tips and strategies, essential do’s and don’t’s from keynote speakers, writers, agents, editors, marketers, and other industry professionals.
