For 2019, we decided to do things a little differently. In the past, attendees had 5 minutes to pitch their completed manuscripts. Having only a few short minutes to pitch a project to an agent or editor often proved incredibly stressful, plus, many attendees want to discuss other aspects of writing and publishing, so we came up with 10-minute consults. Pitch your finished manuscript, or talk about a project you've started, or ask about the publishing industry; you decide how to use your ten minutes! Each agent or editor will have 14 slots available. Attendees can sign up during registration for $10 (limit 2). If there are slots open as we near the conference (and on May 3) we'll open it up to allow attendees to purchase additional consults for $10 each. There will be a time keeper moderating the session, but it is extremely important that both the writers and the agent/editor are mindful of not going over the allotted time.
Because we have extended the time with agents from 5 minutes to 10 minutes, we cannot offer our unsual Critique Session.
