The importance of tenacity is one of literary agent Jenny Bent’s observations in an interesting and informative interview with her about how she became an agent and how she regards her role in book publishing. Among her insights is this: “There are a lot of ways to attract the attention of an agent these days.” Want to know more? Take a look at “Bent on Books.” Jenny will be at our conference next Saturday, October 20.

Who we areWe are a group of writers living in Western Massachusetts, Southern Vermont, and thereabouts who organize and run the Write Angles conference on an entirely volunteer basis.
We are “budget-friendly”Last year our Write Angles conference was featured in Writer's Digest "Conference Scene" as one of four "budget-friendly events." For the first time in at least five years we've increased our fees a little, but we think it's still quite a bargain. Our all-day conference, with continental breakfast and buffet lunch, is $100 in advance and $110 at the door, while full-time students and those age 65 and up pay only $80 in advance and $90 at the door.
