I hope all is well and that you’re enjoying the start of your summer break! In preparation for the summer residency, I’m passing along information about an exciting opportunity to meet with a literary agent in August. On Tuesday, August 7th from 3-5pm, West Conn will host an agent panel featuring the following three agents:
Connor Goldsmith: https://www.fuseliterary.com/connor-goldsmith/
Saba Sulaiman: http://talcottnotch.net/index.php/agents/saba-sulaiman
Rita Rosenkrantz: http://www.ritarosenkranzliteraryagency.com/
Each agent will give a brief talk about their work and publishing trends, then they will meet with students individually. If you’re interested in meeting with an agent, please take a moment to review their profiles and decide which one would be a good match for your work. Then, by June 15th, send me a query letter and the first 10-pages of your project. Let me know which agent you would like to meet with. I will then pass along your materials to him/her (please do not contact them directly). While this opportunity is open to all students, graduating students will receive priority. If you do not get a chance to meet with an agent at this residency, there will be additional opportunities at future residencies.
If you have any questions, please let me know. More information about the summer residency and confirmation of your fall courses will be available soon!
All the best,
