Literary Agent Scott Hoffman, of Folio Literary Management, LLC, will be conducting a limited number of 10 minute one on one consultation sessions during this year’s WV Writers Summer Conference. For this process, Mr. Hoffman will be reviewing in advance the material sent in by those members who have registered for sessions with him and then will hold the one on one consultations with those members at the conference to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the material, offer advice and, potentially, representation. These consultations will be scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis and must be registered for in advance.

To be eligible to participate in one of these sessions, applicants must: A) be a member of West Virginia Writers in good standing; B) pre-register for the summer conference for at least one day; C) pay a fee of $20 in advance (which will go to help to offset WV Writers’ expenses in bringing Mr. Hoffman to the conference and will not be paid to Mr. Hoffman himself); D) mail a typed example of their work to WV Writers at the address below by May 20, 2007, using the following guidelines:

For fiction submissions, send a 1 to 2 page synopsis of the work for Mr. Hoffman to review in advance and include the first five pages of said work; for nonfiction submissions send a complete nonfiction proposal. For details on how to write a nonfiction proposal, please see the article by Jeff Kleinman in the latest newsletter or at the Folio website,

The first twenty-five qualifying submissions received will be granted the consultation sessions. All others will have their $20 fee refunded. We will also keep a waiting list of alternates to be used in cases of cancellation or if there is time left after the twenty five sessions have concluded and if Mr. Hoffman is willing.

If you are unable to keep your appointment for any reason, please notify our consultation sessions coordinator, Chris Freeburn, by May 31, ( If notification is received by this time, your $20 fee will be refunded.
