EPIC Group Writers host literary agent’s workshop
This fall literary agent Elizabeth Wales will meet area writers as part of an agent workshop hosted by EPIC Group Writers.
“We want to give local writers a chance to work with an agent,” said EPIC President Janette Turner, “and we are excited to host Elizabeth Wales at this workshop.”
The workshop takes place on two Saturdays. On Sept. 20, story developer Elena Hartwell will help writers refine their narrative arc, and Ingrid Emerick and Andrea Dunlop of Girl Friday Productions will help writers create a winning proposal.
On Nov. 8, writers will meet with Elizabeth Wales to become pitch-perfect.
“Having two workshops,” said Turner, “means writers will have time to refine their work before meeting with agent Elizabeth Wales.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for our local writers. Some may already be signed up for Write on the Sound or college classes, but this is different. This gives writers a chance to actually meet an agent.”
Wales’ clients include Dan Savage, author of “It Gets Better,” and Lucia Perillo, PEN/short list writer of “Happiness is a Chemical in the Brain,” along with other award-winning writers and several independent presses.
Wales heads Wales Literary Agency, Inc., a full-service agency representing writers of quality fiction and narrative nonfiction since 1990.
The Wales Literary Agency is regarded as a competitive boutique agency with a quality list. The agency is a member of the Association of Authors’ Representatives.
The workshop program will be held at Frances Anderson Center and is limited to 24 participants.
