The 2023 Agents Symposium is a curated year-long experience (February through November) that brings writers into a virtual space to connect with and learn about publishing today from featured literary agents. 

On Saturday, September 30, join us for the September Agents Symposium presentation:

“From Acquisition to Publication” with Chad Luibl of Janklow & Nesbit

In this presentation, we’ll look at all aspects of the publishing journey beginning with acquisition all the way to publication day. We’ll walk you through what you can expect once your manuscript has been acquired by an editor at a publishing house, including everything from editing to self-promotion, and all the key decisions in between that (hooray! pop the champagne!) lead to a successful book launch. (What’s a “successful book launch?” Great question! We’ll talk about that, too.)

The 30-minute presentation will be followed by a moderated conversation and an audience Q&A. For the conversation, our presenter Chad Luibl will be joined by WLT ED Becka Oliver.

Do you have burning questions about the road to publication day that you want to make sure we answer? You can share them with us ahead of the event via this form and then tune in for the live webinar on Saturday, September 30 where all will be revealed. The deadline to submit your questions is Thursday, September 28 at 5 PM CT (questions will also be accepted via the Q&A box during the event).

If you cannot make the live webinar, everyone who registers will receive access to the event recording for one month. 

Registration for this presentation will close on Friday, September 29 at 5:00 PM CT.

The ten participating literary agents represent a wide array of genres and categories. They have a cumulative 100+ years of experience in the publishing industry and they work at established literary agencies and with an impressive roster of clients.

Each of the participating literary agents will join us for a Saturday session where they’ll give a presentation on a topic related to traditional publishing, followed by a conversation with a WLT staffer and closing with an extended Q&A.

Featured Presenter(s)

Chad Luibl received a BA in English at Lynchburg University before moving to Eastern Europe to teach English for several years. While in Krakow, Poland, he got his MA in European Studies at Jagiellonian University, with a focus in Comparative Literature. He went on to get his MFA in Creative Writing at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he was also the coordinator of the VCU Cabell First Novelist Award, an intern in the Literature Department at the National Endowment for the Arts, and an editor at Blackbird and Broad Street literary journals. Chad comes from the workshop model of creative writing and has a hands-on editorial approach to agenting. He is interested in narrative nonfiction with a strong emotional pull from journalists and writers who challenge the status quo. For fiction, he is particularly drawn to novels that are more character or plot-driven, thrillers that are as inventive as they are suspenseful, speculative and historical fiction that offer a nuanced perspective on place, and graphic novels that push the boundaries of the genre.
