May 9, 1:30 PM: Everything You Wanted To Know About Literary Agents But Were Afraid To Ask by Nikki Terpilowski, owner of Holloway Literary
A literary agent tells you what they are looking for in a client, what they're not looking for, what those canned responses really mean, and what you can do to improve your chances of landing a literary agent. Plus Q&A - Get your questions ready!
June 13, 1:30 PM: Growing Your Author Platform in the Changing Media and Publishing Landscape. Andrea Kiliany Thatcher is a Book Publicist at Smith Publicity, a bookseller and social media manager at McIntyre's Books.
