Juvenile Writers of Kansas City Hosts Agent Day

Jennifer DeChiara
The Juvenile Writers of Kansas City group is hosting an Agents Day on September 20, 2008. Come meet agents Tina Dubois Wexler from International Creative Management, Linda Pratt from the Sheldon Fogelman Agency and Jennifer DeChiara of the Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency.
When: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where: Kansas City Public Library
14 West 10th Street, Kansas City, MO 64105
From the JWKC website:
"They [the agents] will speak about the children’s book market and answer questions during the morning session, as well as take limited individual appointments.

The afternoon features two sessions: In the panel discussion “Building an Identity,” agents will discuss how writers can create a professional identity and use it as a marketing tool. And, back by popular demand, our “First Page” critique session will let attendees have the first page of a manuscript read aloud and critiqued by the panel of agents."
