Perfect Pitch Panel: Chicago


Agents Jeff Kleinman of Folio Literary Management and Renée Zuckerbrot of the Renée Zuckerbrot Literary Agency join publicist Michael Taeckens and Kevin Larimer, editor in chief of Poets & Writers Magazine, for a conversation about how authors can make a good impression—in query letters, book proposals, and even at social gatherings. A select group of audience members are invited on stage for a critique of their query letters—and one writer gets a special surprise.

Editors Panel: Chicago


Melissa Faliveno, associate editor of Poets & Writers Magazine, talks with the editors of literary magazines and small presses about the kind of work they publish, along with practical advice for writers looking to submit their work and tips for how to establish successful working relationships with editors. Panelists include Adrienne Gunn of TriQuarterly, Jeff Pfaller of Midwestern Gothic, Don Share of Poetry magazine, and Ben Tanzer of Curbside Splendor.
