Jennifer DeChiara Launches Meet the Editor Evenings

Meet the Editor Evening: January 22, 2009

The Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring a series of Meet The Editor Evenings in their NYC offices. The workshops are kept small, with usually no more than six writers in each group, to ensure that everyone gets personal attention, and each writer submits work (five pages from two manuscripts or ten pages from one) that is given to that editor and critiqued aloud in the workshop. There are a few openings for the Meet The Editor Evening on January 22, 2009 with Wendy Loggia, Executive Editor at Delacorte Press, Random House. The focus at Delacorte is almost exclusively on novels for ages 8-12 and 12 & up. Some of the novels Ms. Loggia has edited include THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS novels by Ann Brashares and her latest, 3 Willows; THE GEMMA DOYLE TRILOGY by Libba Bray; and the MAGIC IN MANHATTAN books by Sarah
Mlynowski. She's looking for literary fiction, quirky romance/paranormal, and humor, and always strong voices, great stories, and characters to care about. For more information on this workshop and upcoming Meet The Editor Evenings, writers should call the Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency at 212-481-8484 x362.

Kudos to the agency and editors for offering such a nice opportunity! I wonder for writers unable to be in the city, if they are able to participate via conference call or web cam?

Hi Joanne,

Great idea! I asked Jennifer and she wrote:

"Angela, I can't thank you enough for doing this. Your reader has a wonderful idea; I'll look into it and let you know. I'm excited about the possibilities! Thanks again. Hugs, Jennifer"

Keep your fingers crossed! =)
