Featured in Writer’s Digest as one of 27 agents looking for new work (October 2010), Gordon Warnock, senior agent for Andrea Hurst Literary, will be joining us. He’ll be accepting advance submissions in commercial fiction, young adult, pets(!) and humor, as well as narrative and practical non-fiction. Deadline for advance submissions is a mere two weeks away so you’ll want to move fast on this one. Also just confirmed, ZOVA Books publisher Molly Lewis, along with editor-in-chief Daniel Silva, are aboard to address the topic on everybody’s mind: The Next Generation of Publishing: Where the Industry is and Where it is Going.
The PoetryCram is beginning to fill up, as is Jean Jenkins’ genre-centric “Best Foot Forward: Polishing To Impress.” Remember, these sessions are limited in size and available only on a first-come, first-served basis. For Jeanie’s, in particular, the deadline to email requested material is Jan. 24th.
Another deadline fast approaching is the Early “Bard” Discount off full conference registration. Register by Feb. 1 and save. There’s plenty of room.
