THE SAN FRANCISCO WRITE AND PITCH CONFERENCE - February 19 - 21, 2010
W&PC Faculty and Presenters
Our faculty is a combination of experience and desire. We choose to work with agents and editors who are not only connected, affable, and wise, but also list-building and willing to listen and work with new writers. Agencies represented at our pitch sessions include Andrea Hurst Literary Management, Dreisbach Literary Management, Castiglia Agency, Dijkstra Agency, AEI Film and Literary Agency, Paul Levine Agency, ICM, LarsenPomada, and Reece Halsey/Cameron Agency. All of the agents are actively looking for new clients. Many have chosen to represent writers from Algonkian events. All of them are more than willing to advise, and to review your work at such time it is ready.
