2011 LATINO AUTHORS & WRITERS CONFERENCE COMES TO NEW YORK CITY. The only Latino writer__™s conference on the East Coast!
This is the place where you can start your journey to becoming a published writer or author.
The Latino Authors & Writers Conference is designed to be an event that is fun and informative. The organizers of the conference have recruited great speakers, agents, and facilitators so that you may have the most positive experience they can offer. The conferences are kept down to just one day in order to make them easier to attend, and so that out-of-town attendees don't have to spend a lot of money on hotel stays.
The Latino Authors & Writers Conference is an annual event, taking place just once a year during Hispanic Heritage Month. This year__™s event begins at 8:00am on Saturday, October 1st, 2011 and concludes at 5:00pm on the same day. If you are coming in from out-of-town, you should try to plan your arrival for Friday night and your departure for Sunday morning (unless you really want to make a trip out of it, which we strongly suggest, and take some time out to see the sights and enjoy the other things New York City has to offer). Remember, the conference is an all-day event, so there's a good chance you may be a little tired at the end of the day. You'll be informed, content, and motivated, but you may also be winding down by the end of the day. Take time to relax, stretch, and enjoy the city after the conference (that's kind of why we're holding it in New York City).
Conference attendees will participate in one of two activities... those with finished manuscripts or self-published books will participate in a breakout session (class) given by a literary professional regarding how best to "pitch" their book to an agent. They will be told what's best to include, what should be left out, what the agent is probably looking for, and how to condense their pitch to best take advantage of the time they and the agent will devote to the actual "pitch" process (approximately two to five minutes per attendee). If the agent is interested in an attendee's material, the attendee will be notified via email by the conference host.
Attendees that are aspiring or published writers, but who do not have a book or finished manuscript ready, can take the opportunity, while the pitch classes and pitches are going on, to participate in highly informative and interesting breakout sessions (classes) being facilitated by professionals in the industry. The topics this year are Writer's Rights and Character Creation.
Attendees should sign up now to take advantage of the Early Bird attendance fee of only $99.00 for those ___pitching___ to agents, and only $79.00 for those that will not be ___pitching___ to the agents at this time. Prices go up on the first of September.
