Agents Day

I’m looking forward to the Agents Day that will be held on March 20, 2010, at St. Charles Community College. It’s sponsored by the Missouri chapter of the SCBWI.

Agents Participating:
* Kelly Sonnack from Andrea Brown Literary Agency
* Ammi-Joan Paquette from Erin Murphy Literary Agency
* Stephen Frasier from Jennifer De Chiara Agency

Here's the schedule:
9:00 Opening and introduction of speakers
9:10 – 10:00 Ammi-Joan Paquette of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency
10:10 – 11:00 Stephen Fraser of the Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency
11:10-12:00 Jennifer Rofe of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency
12:00 – 12:30 Agents’ Panel for Questions
12:30 – 1:45 Lunch
1:45 – 3:00 Lynnea Annette – Building your networking and on-line presence.
3:15 – 4:30 Lynn Rubright’s Creativity Seminar

I’ve signed up for a critique session in the afternoon. The instructions say to bring copies of the first 500 words of my manuscript, which will be read aloud to the agent and critique group. I’m taking the beginning of my middle grade paranormal, My Bewitching Autumn.
