Online Workshop: Editor/Agent Appointments

MAY 29 - Online Workshop: Editor/Agent Appointments

Have you ever thought of scheduling an editor or agent appointment at one of the numerous regional RWA conferences, or perhaps even at the RWA National Conference itself? Or maybe you've stumbled, stammered, fumbled or floundered your way through one of these nerve-racking sessions already? Here's your chance to polish your public speaking and pitch skills and learn the In's and Out's of Editor and Agent Appointments, in a fun-filled, one-day upcoming online workshop hosted by Louisville Romance Writers!

Join literary agent Nephele Tempest as she covers the basics of how to not only survive an editor or agent appointment, but how to make a positive, lasting impressions, as well: how to dress, the right (and wrong!) things to say, what to bring with you, and more.

Nephele Tempest joined The Knight Agency in January, 2005, opening the Los Angeles office. As an agent, she works with a number of talented writers, assisting them to hone their skills and build their careers. In addition, she spends time developing the agency's Hollywood film and multi-media contacts.

Nephele comes from a diverse publishing and finance background, having worked in the editorial department at Simon and Schuster, as a financial advisor, in the marketing and communications departments of several major New York investment firms, and as a freelance writer. Her experiences in sales, marketing, and writing provide her with insights into multiple aspects of the publishing industry. Nephele belongs to the Association of Authors' Representatives (AAR), Romance Writers of America (RWA), and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
