One of our special guests of honor this year is literary agent, Scott Hoffman, co-founder of the Folio Literary Management Agency. Mr. Hoffman will be available for one on one sessions with members of WV Writers who wish to propose their work for representation and to receive feedback on said work. (See Scott Hoffman's page at Folio's website for what sort of material he looks for as a literary agent.)

Members of WV Writers will be able to preregister for these sessions beginning in mid-April at a cost of $20. (WV Writers is using the fee for this to off-set our costs in bringing in Mr. Hoffman for our conference.)

There will be 25 one on one sessions available, with a standby list in case of session cancellations.

Details on how to pre-register for Scott Hoffman sessions will be released in our Spring newsletter in mid-April and simultaneously online. WV Writers cannot accept any pre-registration before then. So keep your eyes peeled for your next newsletter and be sure we have your correct contact information on file.

In the meantime, members who are interested in the Scott Hoffman sessions are encouraged to begin preparing their proposed manuscript samples for the session, as well as compiling a query letter for fiction submissions or a proposal for nonfiction submissions. Please use the following links to articles written by Mr. Hoffman's Folio co-founder Jeff Kleinman.
