Join us for the WI-SCBWI Winter Webinar Agent Day Event from the comfort of your home computer! This half-day event will focus on first impressions—from an agent with your query to a reader in the book store, opening your novel to its first page.

Two agents will speak on the day of, and an author/agent pair will meet you ahead of time in the private, registrant-only Facebook group* to talk about how they met. Want more access? This year, instead of optional public pitches, faculty will give private feedback on queries and your first page. Sign up now to make sure you get a spot!

Once registered, join us on twitter: #WISCBWI19, or in the private Facebook group* where we will peer-workshop first lines.
