Jolie Stekly is leading a packed pre-conference session for first-time attendees.
The question came up: Should you pitch an agent or editor at a conference like this?
Answer: No. There will be opportunities for that, and it's better that you get to know the editors and agents a bit before you try to sync up on projects. (Conference attendees may submit work later using information provided in your packet.)
What's more, the most valuable networking resources you'll meet at this conference are your peers. The people sitting around you can be great allies in improving your work.
