AGENT ROUND TABLE ASSIGNMENTS

We know how important seeing the right agent, editor, or publisher can be, and that’s why we give you ample opportunity to meet them at network dinners, lunches, social gatherings, and classroom sessions. We also work within the changing schedules of agents, editors, and publishers. We have made every effort to give everyone their specific choices of Agent Round Tables, but have sometimes had to make changes in time slots or agents, editors, or publishers to accommodate logistics. Should you have a problem with any pairing, please contact us at contact@killernashville.com and we will make every effort to move you to a new time slot if space is available, keeping in mind that a maximum of five (5) authors are only allowed within each session. Our goal is for you to reach your goals.

 

Each roundtable will consist of 5 writers, 1 agent or editor, and a volunteer to read submissions. When submitting your offering, please remember the following:

  • We ask writers to provide a minimum of 7 copies of the first two pages of their manuscript for each member of the group to bring the day of their editor roundtable. 
  • Please use double spacing with reasonable font sizing, such as 12 pt New Times Roman, with one-inch margins.
  • In the header area of the first page, include your name, book title, genre or subgenre, email address and/or phone number, and a one-sentence logline/description of the book to give the reader context. (Note: You may start the text at the top of the first page, rather than dropping down a number of lines to begin a chapter in standard manuscript format.)

After each manuscript is read, the agents and/or editors will give constructive feedback on the pages. Each agent and editor has been asked to keep comments instructional, helping writers see both their strengths and where they need to improve. Agents and editors may request partial or full manuscripts if they think a manuscript has promise.

Since it is understood that these sessions are educational in nature, in practice, each session serves as a pitch without penalizing a writer whose work is not yet ready for representation or publication. In addition, each writer can learn from what is said to the others.

Authors may register for as many sessions as they wish to, however, multiple sessions with the same agent or editor are discouraged. You must be a paid registrant of the Killer Nashville Conference to participate in any Agent Round Tables. You may sign up for sessions during your conference registration process. Each session is $15.
