Atlanta Writers Conference May 9-10, 2014

Atlanta Writers Club

On Friday-Saturday, May 9-10, 2014 the Atlanta Writers Club will present its tenth Atlanta Writers Conference. The goal of this conference is to give you access to ten top publishing editors and literary agentsnever any repeats from previous conferences; always an all-new lineupand to educate you with a workshop and talks by experienced authors. The editors and agents will respond to your pitch; critique the manuscript sample, query, and synopsis you submit in advance; critique your query letter during a Friday practice session so you can improve your work for Saturday; and educate you about the current environment of the publishing industry and the changing roles of editors, agents, and their clients.

 

Here is the current count, as of March 29, of the number of open spots for each of our guests (where “standby” is indicated, the queue is short to non-existent, so there still is a good chance of getting a spot due to a cancellation):

Heather Alexander, Dial Books – no critique spots open (standby only) / no pitch spots open (standby only)
