Put Your Heart in a Book Conference
Editor/Agent Appointments

Editor/Agent Signups Coming Soon!

NJRW is pleased to welcome a number of editors and agents to this year’s conference.

Each editor and/or agent will be taking appointments on Saturday, Oct. 18, from 10:15 a.m. to 12 p.m. Each appointment is 8-10 minutes. Editor/agent appointments are done on a first-come, first-served basis, so early registration will ensure you have a spot for this important part of the conference. Even if editors and agents get added to our list later, you will have an opportunity to update your choices for appointments. It’s your spot in registration that matters. The earlier you sign up, the more likely it will be that you get your top choices.

Check back here for the growing list of 2014 attending Editors and Agents!

Once registration has begun, you will be able to access the form to request an editor/agent appointment here as well.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact 2014 Editor/Agent Chair, Joanna Shupe, joannashupe@gmail.com

The presence of a specific editor/publisher or agent/agency at the NJRW Conference is not intended to be an endorsement of or recommendation for that particular industry professional. All writers are urged to carry out due diligence and research before signing with an agent/agency for representation or accepting a publishing contract with any publisher. This due diligence is even more important now during this volatile time in the publishing industry when lines between the roles of authors, agents, editors and publishers are blurring.
