You will learn why you do (or don't) need a literary agent, the various paths you can take to publication, and how to effectively pitch your writing to industry professionals.

Some of the presentation topics include: common myths about literary agents, how to research literary agents, how to write a compelling query letter, and what the author/agent relationship looks like after accepting an offer of representation.
