Editor/Agent Appointments

    RWA2014 conference attendees have the opportunity to sign up for pitch appointments with romance fiction-acquiring editors and agents. Pitch appointments are individual 10-minute meetings where writers pitch their (completed) romance novels/novellas to editors/agents. Conference attendees may sign up for one editor and one agent appointment each.
