ABC-Artisans of Books
How it works.
This is your opportunity to get personal advice and counseling from our New York Publishing Professionals and most other members of our faculty. You’ll get an honest opinion of your work and, most importantly, the areas you need to improve on from a person qualified to do it! You can make great strides forward in your writing progress from what you learn at this one day conference. You may select (on a first come first serve basis) a faculty member to have a twenty minute one-to-one counseling meeting. Yes, they will expect you to pitch your work to them if they have connections to your genre, general fiction, or non-fiction interest area.
Here’s how it works:
You must be a registered participant of the conference to be eligible for the one-to-one sessions.
Read about each faculty member’s area of expertise and determine which members you would like to consult. There is a limit of two sessions with our New York Agents/Editors per participant. There is no limit on our “local” faculty.
Each faculty member will have a writing sample requirement that must be submitted to the conference 60 days (in our hands) prior to the conference. This allows the faculty member to review your work in advance and give you better suggestions. Requirements are specified in the “selection sheets” in this program.
You will have a time(s) and place(s) provided to you in your registration packet the day of the conference.
Most consultations will be in the Dining Hall, but some may be moved to other locations to accommodate presenters. (See map)
If the faculty member you’ve chosen already has been “sold out” you will be given the opportunity to select another member. Availability of all faculty is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Rates per session with each individual are marked on the selection sheets. New York Agent/Editor Faculty is $50 for each session. Faculty is $30 for each session.
