Mark your calendar for WriteOnCon's next Live Event!

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, we've been hard at work here at WriteOnCon, lining up Industry Pros for our special Live Events, and we're ready to announce the next one!!!

(I'll pause while you jump around and toss confetti and celebrate and stuff) 

We're trying hard to make each event unique, awesome, and fun--so we're super excited about this month's event, which will be held on:

Monday, October 25th, 2010
at 9:00 pm EST

And will feature a very special Live-Chat with the fabulous Sara Megibow of  Nelson Literary Agency, LLC. 

About Sara:

Sara has worked at the Nelson Literary Agency since 2006. For three years, her main responsibility was to be the first reader for all queries, sample pages and full manuscripts submitted to the agency. In 2009, Sara was promoted to Associate Literary Agent and is actively acquiring new clients. The Nelson Literary Agency specializes in representing young adult and middle grade fiction, romance, science fiction and fantasy, commercial and women’s fiction (including chick lit) and high concept literary fiction. Nelson Literary Agency is a  member of AAR, RWA, SFWA and SCBWI. Please visit our website for submission guidelines, and feel free to visit Sara’s Publisher’s Marketplace site to learn more about her personal tastes and recent sales.

We know, we're amazed at how cool she is too--and you guys will get to spend an entire hour asking her all your most pressing publishing questions!!!  And since it will be a solo chat, we should be able to get through a ton of questions. 

So make sure you mark your calendars for October 25th--you do not want to miss out on this awesome opportunity. We promise fun, fabulous info, and well...probably some virtual dancing. Though I'll *try* to restrain myself.

See you October 25th!!!!!!!!!


  1. This is so cool. I would so love to have her as my agent. I can't wait.

  2. We can't wait. Thanks so much for all your efforts.

  3. I'll be on holiday and internetless, but will look forward to the transcript!

  4. You know, no WriteOnCon live event would be complete without your virtual dancing, Shannon. It's essential!

    Looking forward to the chat!

  5. Awesomesauce! Marking my calendar now! :-)

  6. Yay! Can't wait! Calendar has been marked.

  7. Wow!!! What a great WritOnCon event to have organised!! Thank you!!!

    Take care

  8. Whew hoo!!! That's great! Are you going to moderate again? Cause you were awesome at it.

  9. If you people keep adding amazing new stuff to WOC every month (or more) it's going to start seeming commonplace.

    Actually ... no it won't. It will still be awesome.

  10. Can't wait! Are you going to dance again? And Sara seems really nice. I had an online pitch session with her earlier today and she requested the 1st 30 pages of my book. Woot! Here's hoping she likes the pages. *bites nails down to nothing*

  11. Awesome! Better bust those dance shoes out again. :D


Yay-I love comments! Thank you so much! (But please remember to keep your comments spoiler-free. Also, I try to keep this a happy, positive place. Any arguing or intense debate--on any subject will be removed. Let's keep this a safe, fun space.
