It’s less than two weeks to the Silken Sands Conference. I’m among those counting the days. This Moonday, meet the agents who are attending the Silken Sands Conference. They’ll be participating in panel discussions and taking pitches. There’s still editor/agent pitch appointments available for those attending the full conference or the Saturday-only drive-in.
