Lit Fest passholders have the opportunity to meet with agents. Given their busy schedules, this is a rare chance to receive their direct feedback and advice, and to ask them your own burning questions.
Craft seminars are designed to help writers of all levels break through creative blocks and gain new insight into particular topics, techniques, or genres. Most seminars are capped at 15–24 participants; seminars with an asterisk next to their title can accommodate 25 participants and more.
Stick around after class and enjoy some of the free evening events, including visiting authors’ readings and conversations, parties, and dynamic discussions and performances featuring three or more speakers with varying perspectives on a theme.
