3F: Queery-ing: How to Snag an Agent as a Queer Author
Limited Capacity seats available

Despite an uptick in agent and publisher interest for queer stories, many authors are still struggling to find homes for their work.

We’ll also briefly look at a few situations you may run into post-offer, such as what to expect from the editor submission process and what to do if your new agent turns out to be an inappropriate fit for supporting authentic queer stories.
