Prepare. Pitch. Publish. #preppitchpub
You want agents. They’ve got agents.

Here’s an opportunity to pitch your book directly to vaunted agents in search of new voices! Advocate for your book in a high-energy environment, and you might just become another MWW success story.

Connect with literary agents who are actively searching for the next big thing across all genres including fiction, nonfiction, children’s, young adult and more. During the Agent Fest, you’ll have a chance to meet agents one-on-one and capture their attention with the basic concept of your book.

They’ve assembled a dynamic roster of top-tier agents to participate in our new Agent Fest. They have two days of valuable sessions on how to write a query letter and a synopsis, what agents are looking for, what makes an agent/editor stop reading your manuscript, and more. No matter what you’re writing – fiction or nonfiction – the sessions will help point you in the right direction. Writers of all genres are welcome.

Agent Fest is designed to squeeze as much into two days of learning as possible. You can ask any questions you like during the sessions, and get your specific concerns addressed. The literary agents will give feedback and take pitches from writers. Faculty includes: (Read their bios & wish lists)
Noah Ballard (Curtis Brown, Ltd.)
Elizabeth Bewley (Sterling Lord Literistic)
Savannah Brooks (Jennifer De Chiara)
Brenna English-Loeb (Transatlantic Agency)
Joanna MacKenzie (Nelson Literary)
Devin Ross (New Leaf Literary)
JL Stermer (New Leaf Literary)

You’ll meet one-on-one with at least one agent and possibly two depending on the number of registrants. Each pitch lasts three minutes, composed of a 90-second pitch and a 90-second response from the agent with feedback.

By Saturday evening, you will have added more tools to help you move forward on your writing journey.

Secure your spot today.
