Details for this year’s BEA Writers Conference (Wednesday May 27, 2009 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC) are now posted. Don’t miss out on the country’s leading witers conference–I go to this every year and it’s always a great event. The pitch slam (a chance to sit down face to face with literary agents and pitch your project) makes the event worth it, not to mention helpful workshops and panels by working authors, agents and editors. It’s a great chance to gain insight into the publishing industry, learn about the latest trends, get some expert advice and shop your project around.
This year’s keynote speaker is best-selling suspense novelist Karin Slaughter, author of Triptych and Fractured.
