To Agent or Not to Agent?

You’ve finished your manuscript. Now what? Try to get an agent? Self-publish? Go the hybrid-press route? Don’t waste time guessing! Attend “To Agent or Not to Agent?” one of the many panels offered at the 2022 Washington Writers Conference on May 13-14 in Rockville, MD!

During the panel, Rose Solari, poet and co-founder of Alan Squire Publishing, will join in conversation with Tyrese Coleman, author of How to Sit and the forthcoming Spectacle, Alle C. Hall, author of the forthcoming As Far As You Can Go Before You Have to Come Back, and children’s book illustrator Ariel Mendez, whose work appears in My First Book of Shona and Ndebele Words and Hair Like Me. Prolific author Tim Wendel will moderate the discussion of all the various paths to publishing.

And if you do decide finding an agent is right for you? You can pitch three of them on the premises! If your work has a sense of humor, try Lizz Nagle or Sam Hiyate. If you write YA, consider Diana Finch, Tara Gilbert, or Susan Hawk. And if you’re pitching something else entirely? One of our other participating agents may be just who you’re looking for.

Whatever you decide, the 2022 Washington Writers Conference is here to help you take the next step on your publishing journey. But don’t wait: We’re nearly sold out, so register now! (Note: Proof of vaccination against covid-19 is required to attend.)
