Over the past years the importance of an agent representing the writer has increased geometrically. Publishing houses depend more and more on agent recommendations and those who are successful have agents that work hard to get their names in front of acquisition teams.
This year at our 2012 Mount Hermon Writers Conference, EIGHT agents will be available to registrants, more than we’ve ever had. Many have agented for multiple years and know the ropes well. Janet Kobobel Grant, Steve Laube, Less Stobbe, Wendy Lawton, Diane Flegal have all been in the business for a long time and have well-known writers in their stables. Karen Ball, Barbara Scott and Joel Kneedler have been in the publishing business for years and now have started agenting. Their experience on both sides of the court is incredible.
Where else can you have access to so many agents in a limited space? Come get to know some of the best in the business and see what God will do with your writing through the connections available to you this year. Check us out at www.mounthermon.org/writers. Hope to see you in March.
