Northern Colorado Writers Conference

Agent Roundables

This if for those writers who have a COMPLETED FICTION manuscript or a COMPLETE PROPOSAL for Nonfiction 

Back by popular demand. Each Literary Agent will participate in two, one-hour roundtable sessions on Friday afternoon. During each of these sessions there will be 7 writers at each table. Each writer will read aloud the first page of his/her manuscript. Everyone at the table will have a copy in front of them as well. After the writer is

done reading, the agent will take a few minutes to comment on what was read. The other participants in the group can make comments on the page, but only the agents will give verbal feedback. If the agent is interested in talking more with an author about his/her book, they will invite you to have a 15 minute, one-on-one appointment with them the next morning. The conference staff will let the writer know if an agent wants to visit with him/her. Nothing will be said at the table in front of the whole group.
