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, August 26, join us for the August Agents Symposium presentation:

“The Submission Process: Finding a Publishing Partner” with Saba Sulaiman of Talcott Notch Literary Services

In this presentation, we’ll spend time discussing what happens when your book is ready to go on submission to editors inside publishing houses. We’ll walk you through the range of what happens after you hand over your completed manuscript to your agent, including how your agent works to ensure your manuscript finds the perfect home and what you can expect during this process.

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

Do you have burning questions about the submission process 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, August 26 where all will be revealed. The deadline to submit your questions is Thursday, August 24 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, August 25 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.
