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.

The 2021 Agents & Editors Conference marks our 28th conference and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome more than 200 attendees, authors, and publishing professionals to Austin once again for one of the best conference experiences available to writers. This year, for the first time, we are offering both an in-person and a virtual registration option. 

The WLT’s Agents & Editors Conference is one of the nation’s premier conferences for writers. Every year, we bring together nationally-known literary agents and book editors and other industry professionals with writers at all stages of the writing process for a weekend of conversation and community around 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 completed manuscript, the conference’s genre meet-ups, panels, presentations, and general sessions 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.

Our 2021 Agents & Editors Conference marks our first in-person event since early 2020 and we are excited to gather together again as a community. Because we also understand that not everyone will be able to attend in person, we’ve added a virtual registration option to this year’s event in the hopes of bringing the weekend’s valuable programming to as many writers as possible.

Registration opens on July 1 for WLT members only. Registration will open to all on July 12. Please read the details on this page closely and reach out if you have any questions. 

We hope to see you in September!

He began his career at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers as an Editorial Assistant and then moved to the G. P. Putnam’s Sons imprint of the Penguin Young Readers Group, where he eventually served as Executive Editor on a wide range of young adult, middle-grade, nonfiction, and picture book titles. He graduated from Amherst College with a double major in Classics and Music.

For adults, he is actively looking for narrative nonfiction, especially in music, sports, history, popular science, “big think”, performing arts, health, business, memoir, military history, and humor. He is also interested in commercial fiction, but is very selective in what he takes on.
