SORRY, AS OF 5pm TODAY, OCTOBER 21, WE ARE SOLD OUT! WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE WALK-INS.
Pre-registration ends Oct. 21 at 5 p.m.
We will not be able to accept WriteAngles pre-registrations after 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 21. Also, those registering on Wednesday or Thursday should be prepared to pay with PayPal since we probably won't receive checks sent on those days via postal mail in time for the conference.
In past years we have always been able to handle a few walk-ins on the day of the conference.
Agent meetings fully booked!
As of today, October 15, all our slots for agent meetings are filled and we are keeping a waiting list. However, even if you don’t get to meet with an agent this year, all is not lost. There were no agent meetings in our first 22 conferences, yet attendees always felt they got more than their money’s worth. Also, be aware that there are other opportunities to talk briefly with agents during the day. For example, they eat lunch too!
Registration has begun
We are accepting registrations by mail or email, with payments by check or PayPal as of today, August 27, for our October 23 conference which will be held at the Willits-Hallowell Center on the Mount Holyoke campus in South Hadley, Massachusetts.
Go to the bottom of the Schedule page for information about individual meetings with literary agents. They will be set up only after full registration is complete (includes payment).
Save this date: October 23, 2010
We have reserved Saturday, October 23, for this year's Write Angles conference which will be held once again at the beautiful Willits-Hallowell Center at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts.
It is exciting that as we plan our 25th (!!) conference we have a whole slew of new volunteers with fresh perspectives and ideas.
The planning committee is moving ahead rapidly. Eight panels have been mapped out, panelists are being invited, and we've lined up our keynoters.
If you want to add your name or anyone else's to our mailing list, please contact us.
I know we say this every year, but this conference will be a special one.
Positive responses to WA24
“I think the conference gets better and better.”
“The new agents’ panel format was great — Thank you!”
“How Agents Think was s-o-o-o good — practical, helpful. Feedback on participants’ work in a panel is a great idea.”
“Roland’s talk was a highlight. I appreciated also the question from one session about what the responsibility of the writer is to the common good. Excellent!”
“Thanks for the excellent day. The new (to me) info on self-publishing and blogs was very helpful. Meeting with an agent gave me excellent feedback on my letter and an invite to send 50 pages. I go away with new energy for writing, looking at blog ideas, etc.”
Write Angles is a non-profit conference run by a committee of volunteers and presented for the benefit of writers.
