Dear Miss Snark,
I understand the different types of writer's conferences. I have been to some wonderful conferences and have had the pleasure of working with some wonderful authors such as James Houston and Dorothy Allison. I have been keeping my eye open for conferences which feature agent interviews but whenever I think I have found one, when I start researching the agents that will actually be there, I find that they specialize in Science Fiction, they aren't listed in Writer's Market, or (horrors!) they are not from New York. What's a girl to do?
Well, let's find out.
PS Geography should not be a basis for choosing an agent. Some of the best agents making deals today live in the non-212, poor dears.
