Class Description

Join NY literary agent, Reiko Davis as she shares practical strategies for finding, querying, pitching, and working with an agent. In this half-day session, Reiko will cover how to go about finding the right agent for your book, how to write a query letter guaranteed to capture an agent's attention, and what to say when that agent at the writers conference asks you what your book is about. She'll also cover how the agent/writer relationship works after you sign the contract. Don't miss this rare opportunity to learn the ins and out of working with an agent...from a working agent! Instructor bio: Reiko Davis has been a literary agent at DeFiore & Company in New York City since 2016. Prior to that, she was at the Miriam Altshuler Literary Agency. She loves historical, contemporary, or multigenerational novels both in the U.S. and internationally; family sagas; voice-driven coming-of-age stories; the occasional rom-com; and fierce, compassionately written works that grapple with identity and belonging and portray diverse lived experiences. She'd love to connect with promising writers of short fiction who are at work on a debut story collection and/or novel. She also represents select narrative non-fiction projects that explore social justice, issues of race and gender, and the history and experiences of women and people of color. She loves compelling journalistic narratives that read like fiction or that use an intimate personal story as a lens for a larger issue or analysis.
