Do you have a completed manuscript you’re ready to get out into the world, but you’re not sure where to start? First of all, congratulations! Completing a manuscript is a huge accomplishment. Now you’re ready for the next step: getting the thing published. A good first step on the journey to publication is finding an agent to represent you, especially if you’re hoping to go the traditional publishing route. Join us for a presentation by literary agent Stacey Kondla from the Rights Factory where she will outline what she likes to read in query letters, the types of projects she likes to represent, and what she likes to hear in pitches. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A, so bring all your burning questions!
A life-long bibliophile, Stacey’s experience includes working as a Field Representative for Scholastic Book Fairs, managing at Chapters/Indigo stores, freelance editing, and serving on the organizing committee of When Words Collide (A Festival for Readers and Writers). She joined The Rights Factory in 2018 and represents fiction and nonfiction authors across age categories and across genres. Stacey is drawn to strong narrative voices, innovative storytelling, feeling all the feels, laughing all the laughs, and also the dark and the weird.
