Join James River Writers and Literary Agent Paige Wheeler for the September Writing Show— How to Meet Your Public: Networking for Writers.
Networking, online and in person, is more important than ever in the publishing industry. There are valuable opportunities to talk to authors and pitch agents at conferences. But what makes a good pitch, and can you launch it if you run into an agent in the bathroom? What if you are an introvert who really only feels comfortable with cats? Or an extrovert who inadvertently frightens people? Who are you online, and does it matter? Literary agent Paige Wheeler from Creative Media Agency Lit has the answers to these questions and will tell us the good, bad, and brilliant ways to behave ourselves in public and online. Whether you are just starting to write or are meeting an agent at the James River Writers Conference next month, this show will give you an edge.
Come early at 6:00 and have some snacks and show off your networking skills. Secret judges will be watching, and the best networker will have the opportunity to send an agent their first pages. (more…)
