I'm excited to announce that the 2014 Storymakers Midwest Writers Conference has our very first guest literary agent! Please give a big welcome to . . .
Sarah Negovetich, Corvisiero Literary Agency
Her first love is YA, because at seventeen the world is your oyster. Only oysters are slimy and more than a little salty; it's accurate if not exactly motivational. We should come up with a better cliche.
Sarah divides her time between her own writing and working with amazing authors as a Jr. Agent and PR Team Leader at Corvisiero Literary Agency. Her background is in marketing, which is not as glamorous as it sounds. FYI, your high school algebra teacher was right when they told you every job uses math. Sarah uses her experience to help authors craft amazing stories, build platforms, and promote their work.
Sarah reps the fabulous Nichole Giles, who is attending as well. Cyber stalk Sarah on her website, Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.
Sarah's conference classes include:
One Hour Marketing Plan
The Agent/Author Relationship (co-taught with Nichole Giles)
Query Letter Workshop (This class is limited to 15 attendees, queries of any genre, and is a paid intensive class - $20)
***Sarah will not be hosting paid pitch sessions, but will have her contact info available for queries after the conference.
Please give Sarah a BIG HELLO in the comments!
See you at the conference on Sept. 20th in Kansas City. =)
