How to Win Agents and Influence Editors

Agent Media is hosting a webinar on March 18—featuring mega-agent Rachelle Gardner and marketing expert Thomas Umstattd, Jr.—on how to stand out at a writer's conference.

Just a hint of what they're offering:

  • What turns agents on, what turns them off and what makes them run away in terror.
  • How to avoid the classic mistakes that scream “amateur”.
  • The 5 things successful authors do before the conference to double their chance for success.
  • How to talk to an agent who’s already booked solid (without staking out the bathroom).
  • Tips, timelines, and goals not offered anywhere else.
It isn't free, but it looks like you'll get a boatload of info for just $15.

I'm in. How about you?

  1. Sounds like a great slew of information! I've never been to a writer's conference where agents meet with authors, but I imagine it would be ripe for many missteps!

  2. Hi Heidi,

    That's why I'm looking forward to this. Don't want to commit a serious faux pas. ;-)

  3. Sounds awesome, but I won't be able to attend. It's good to know that online ones are being offered for those of us who can't travel around the country to connect with agents. Hope you share some of what you've learned.

  4. Natalie,

    I'll check with the presenters first before sharing anything, but hope to have something I can pass along.


I love comments! Thanks for leaving yours.
