Agents, the book-type, not the secret-type, are the liaisons between writers and publishers. They know the type of material editors are looking for--and just as important--what they're not interested in.
As with finding editors, the best way to meet these literary linchpins is in-person, at writers conferences.
But like the irresponsible Sterling Archer, I skipped-out of this important forum altogether. The reason why will be the subject of my next post--so, stay tuned!
Thanks to the PNWA 57th Writers Conference Guide, I can still provide you with the list of agents I didn't meet this year:
Brandi Bowles, Elise Capron, Stacia Decker, Scott Eagan, April Eberhardt, Sally Harding, Mandy Hubbard, Andrea Hurst, Emily Keyes, Elizabeth Kracht, Rachel Letofsky, Jim McCarthy, Kate McKean, Laurie McLean, Beth Miller, Peter Miller, Vicky Motter, Kathleen Ortiz, Rita Rosenkranz, Kathleen Rushall, Victoria Skurnick, Elizabeth Wales, Andrew Wetzel, and Joy Azmitia.
