Writers Conference: Pitching, Real-Time Queries, and Critique Appointments

Deep Breath. Ha.

Since this was my first experience at a writers conference, I had no idea what to expect from these one-on-one appointments with agents; however, I had several goals in mind.

1. Speak less and listen more
2. Don't be defensive about my writing
3. Smile and breathe

This goals served me very well during each of my appointments.

I highly recommend taking advantage of any opportunity to meet one-on-one with agents. This was a very valuable experience for me.


  1. Awesome time! So glad I got to meet you!

  2. I am going to write those goals down; they're great goals for a pitch session.
