WLT Website Walkthrough April 13th 12 pm
  • This event has passed.
Our Ask Us Anything program gives writers the chance to ask WLT staff members and special guests any and all of their burning questions on a specific topic, both by submitting questions ahead of time and asking them during the live event. During the event, chat box chatter is encouraged, giving participants the chance to meet other writers.

Join WLT Executive Director Becka Oliver, and WLT Member Services Manager J Evan Parks, in a lunchtime guided tour of the new website and the many features it offers WLT members, including the Member Dashboard and Member Directory. Come with questions if you have them – we will have lots of answers!

Featured Presenter(s)

Becka Oliver joined the WLT in September 2013 as Executive Director after more than two decades of experience working in newspaper and book publishing. She spent much of her publishing career inside two of the “big five” publishing leaders – Macmillan and Hachette Book Group — licensing domestic and foreign rights on behalf of countless notable authors, including Sandra Brown, Brad Meltzer, Nicholas Sparks, Jon Stewart and the Daily Show, and more. In 2007, she made the leap from Associate Director of Subsidiary Rights at Grand Central Publishing to Literary Agent, first at Endeavor and then at William Morris Endeavor (WME) after the two powerhouse talent agencies merged. As a literary agent, Becka represented clients working in both fiction and nonfiction, including Brunonia Barry, Sheryl Crow, Kamran Pasha, Joanna Philbin, Susan Rebecca White, and the popular blog Awkward Family Photos.
J Evan Parks is a writer and creative currently living in Austin, TX. He is a graduate from the University of Texas at Austin, where he received a double major in English and Japanese. While at UT, he was the Head Writer and Executive Producer of the show Down to Film on the University’s student-run television channel, TSTV. In his spare time, you can find him re-watching old sitcoms or dreaming up critical analyses of the Rocky franchise.
