Title: 4th annual 2019 Maine Writers Conference
Post by: cathy-mckelway on February 13, 2019, 11:46 AM
October 12, 2019 9-4   Belgrade Lakes, Maine

Limited to 30 writers

Meet Christine Krones from Houghton Mifflin and Carter Hassegawa from Candlewick. These editors will host a 10 writer critique table - providing feed back on your query and opening pages . You may query them after the conference.  This is a great way to access publishing professionals directly.

The opening pages of your MS  must grab readers or your query will fail. These experts can help you know if you are ready and/or take your query after the conference. (Christine  represents PB-MG but will pass a MS through to the appropriate editor at Houghton Mifflin.  Carter represents everything from PB-YA.)  They are both closed to un-agented submissions - but not if you attend the conference.

Hannah Fergesen from KT literary will host a crit table with ten writers. She will keep her eyes open for any MS KT literary might want to rep. Hannah reps MG-Adult.
