MWW AGENT FEST

Here’s an opportunity to pitch your book directly to vaunted agents in search of new voices! Prepare. Pitch. Publish.

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. You will have a chance to meet agents one-on-one and capture their attention with the basic concept of your book.

We’ve assembled a dynamic roster of top-tier agents to participate in our new Agent Fest. We 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.

MWW19

MWW19 will allow you to connect with fellow writers and gain insight from published authors who will help you move forward in your writing career, regardless of whether you’re currently a beginner or a veteran of several books.

On Thursday and Friday, you can choose from 28 craft sessions according to your own interests. On Saturday, we have options for everyone!

  • If you are a published author or about-to-be-published author, you can choose Author Platform and Career Development Bootcamp with Jane Friedman.
  • Sessions to hone your first 10 pages!
    • If you write fiction and nonfiction, you can choose Manuscript Makeover or Developmental Editing.
    • If you write mystery or romance, you can choose that Intensive with an award-winning instructor.
