Join us Saturday, June 4, 2011, as our guest speaker presents "The Editor/ Agent Pitch Session: How to Make it a Success!" This information is especially hot right now because those attending our July 23, 2011, annual conference have the chance to pitch to Lia Brown (editor with Avalon Books) and Louise Fury (literary agent with the L. Perkins Agency).
You have a scheduled appointment with the editor or agent of your dreams. Now you’re petrified you’ll never make it through the interview. What do you need to do to prepare?
Guest speaker Kelly Henkins (who writes as Angela Drake) will walk us through ten tried and true tips to overcome anxiety, breeze through that all-important five minutes, and walk away a success.
Kelly Henkins began actively pursuing a writing career twenty years ago. Since then, she has won many awards for short pieces, partials and poetry and published in art magazines.
For eight years, she hosted a weekly workshop on AOL. She continues to moderate a Yahoo Group extension of that workshop, The Writers' Zone, and is owner of the World Romance Writers and World Romance Readers loops.
When not writing, she speaks at conferences and enjoys time with her granddaughter, gardening, journaling, and a myriad of artistic pursuits. Her husband and best friend of twenty-seven years, Bob, supports her many avenues of creativity.
