(Google will give you a great map)


Meet one-on-one with agent Amy Tipton. Her time at the conference can only be short and exclusive so she has agreed to give six writers a full critique of the first 20 pages of a novel, and let you pitch it. You'll get 20 uninterrupted minutes of an agent's time for $40.
Amy wants to see reality-based stories in the Young Adult/Middle Grade range. This means NO SciFi, paranormal, magic, supernatural, alt worlds, or even fantastical. Real people living real lives, please. Edgy or a bit quirky is okay but avoid the nasty, brutal stuff. Send her a synopsis and 15-20 pages with "IWL critique session" as the subject line at First come, first served.   

Also, Ray Rhamey uses the first page of a writer's work to drive his workshop. Great opportunity to let a master look at what you can do, and sing your praises or suggest ways to improve the hook. All work will be critiqued and either discussed in a session or sent to you after the conference. Wonderful opportunity to get an opinion from someone who knows. Send your work to BEFORE the workshop, deadline for submissions is Friday, September 19.

Heeerrrrres Ray!
Look at his biography on the presenter's page to see how he does what he does, and then send your first chapter to him at, with subject IWL.
