THE F. SCOTT FITZGERALD LITERARY CONFERENCE, INC.
Professional Literary Advice from Top Editors and Consultants
Many writers—from the aspiring to the established—already know about the impressive highlights of the F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Conference coming up this October 25 in Rockville, Md. Registrants will have the opportunity to learn from such pros as Elmore “Dutch” Leonard, Susan Cheever, George Pelecanos, Laura Lippman, and many others. Writers can participate in workshops with subjects ranging from novel structure to the relationship between authors and publishers.
For the first time, the Fitzgerald Conference offers writers the opportunity of a one-on-one meeting with a literary magazine editor (Gettysburg Review, Narrative, Blackbird) or literary consultant Amy Holman. This is an opportunity for aspiring authors to sit face-to-face for 20 minutes discussing your manuscript in a scheduled appointment.
How it works:
· once you’ve registered for the conference, you can sign up for an appointment with the consultant of your choice for only $30.
· you’ll have the opportunity to submit your manuscript (Fiction 12-15 pages; Poetry 5-7 pages) – the deadline is Saturday, October 11.
· during the conference, you’ll sit down with the literary consultant and discuss your work.
It’s that easy. This is a rare opportunity to get face time with a professional. The consults will be offered during the morning and afternoon workshop times, so no one will miss Elmore Leonard, Laura Lippman, Michael Dirda, George Pelecanos, or Susan Cheever.
Participating editors include …
· Mark Drew of The Gettysburg Review
· Gregory Donovan of Blackbird
· Patricia Schultheis of Narrative.
· Mary Flinn of Blackbird
· Amy Holman, literary consultant
