805 Writers’ Conference Agents 1|on|1 program is an opportunity for registered conference attendees to meet agents and receive individual feedback on their writing. Four agents are ready to review, evaluate, and discuss your work. This is your opportunity for a 10-minute discussion about your work with someone who represents your genre and is looking for new writers.
Each writer submits the first five pages of their manuscript plus a one-page synopsis only to an agent looking for that genre. Click here for a list of general genres.
Only registered attendees for the conference may participate. Attendees who purchase full weekend, full day passes or one of the workshops will be given priority for the 12 interview slots per agent.
