Agent/Editor Day for Novels (YA & MG) and Chapter Books

Date(s) - 11/07/2020
8:30 am - 12:30 pm

For authors, there is nothing better than getting feedback on your manuscript. Sometimes it’s all you need to move forward with your work. When you can get it from an industry professional, so much the better!

The structure will be different this year–online rather than in person. Attendees will be assigned to a breakout room in Zoom with an agent or editor for feedback and conversation (in small groups of about 6, not individually, for pro critique as well as peer critique). Each attendee will share their screen with the group, and will have five minutes to present as much of their work as they like and ten minutes to get feedback from the group.

It is strongly suggested that you have a complete and polished project on the day of the workshop.

Following the group critiques will be a brief panel discussion with the attending professionals–to discuss acquisitions, and answer questions.
