A_E Conference

Life-changing for serious writers.
— 2019 Conference Attendee

Join us in Austin, TX, September 17-19, 2021 for our annual Agents & Editors Conference, now in its 27th year.

The WLT’s Agents & Editors Conference is one of the nation’s premier conferences for writers. Every year, we bring together more than 20 nationally-known literary agents and book editors with award-winning and bestselling authors for three days of conversation about the craft of writing and the practical steps toward publication.

For writers with finished manuscripts, the conference’s one-on-one consultations with agents and editors offer a unique opportunity to pitch their work directly to publishing professionals.

For writers working toward a complete manuscript, the conference’s genre meetings, panels, presentations, and evening events offer an abundance of useful information and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for informal chats with agents, published authors, and fellow writers from all genres and backgrounds.

Registration for the 2021 Agents & Editors Conference will open for members only on Thursday, July 1
