Backspace Agent-Author Seminar

Event Details

  • Two days of panel discussions, small-group workshops, and one-on-one editorial critiques with ONLY literary agents on the program, including a brand-new workshop with literary agent Donald Maass!

    EXTRA! Thursday evening workshop: “The Art of the Logline: Selling Your Project with a Single Sentence” with Lane Shefter Bishop, Producer, CEO, Vast Entertainment.

    The Backspace Writers Conference and the Agent-Author Seminars offer access to agents so that authors can talk about their project, get a feel for the agents’ personalities and interests, and learn from the agents’ cumulative knowledge and experience. We offer workshops, not pitch sessions, which means that while an author can get their work in front of agents, if the agents feel it’s not yet ready (or if your opus is not quite finished), authors haven’t burned any bridges. The agents know that based on what authors learn at the conference, they might want to take another pass through their manuscript before they submit it. So while ideally, authors will be coming to the seminar with a finished manuscript in hand, they can still connect with agents and learn from their feedback, even if their work is not quite finished.
