In Reply to: Fiction people - check out the LA Book Expo posted by SteveK on May 26, 2008 at 10:11:53:
: This weekend is the Book Expo at the LA Convention Center. Formerly known as the American Booksellers Association Convention and Trade Exhibit, this expo is usually held in New York.
: There is also a BookExpo Writer's Digest Books Writers Conference with lots of agents in attendance. This is the country's leading writing conference featuring name speakers, motivating workshops and the largest gathering of agents and editors of any conference.
: The conference is an all-day affair, with workshops and panels throughout the morning and afternoon. Here are a few highlights:
: * The keynote speaker: best-selling author Jacquelyn Mitchard.
: * Guests include: superstar agent Donald Maass, The editors of Writer's Digest Books, Writer's Digest magazine and Writer's Market
: * Plus dozens of agents taking part in our famous Pitch Slam session!
: Admission to this all-day conference is $199, which includes a copy of the 2008 edition of Writer's Market.
I just got a text message from a friend who is attending today. She says it's big, but not as big as when it's in New York City. Lots of good stuff there though. And lots of agents prowling around.
