I just landed a few hours ago from Denver, where we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Nelson Literary Agency, and I’m already getting jazzed for Chicago! (see what I did there?)
For anyone heading to the conference, here’s how to avoid me:
Don’t go to The Emerald Loop at 8:00 on Thursday. We’ll be doing our first-ever Chicago Meet-Up. It’s going to be an absolute blast, so steer clear.
The rest of my schedule is after the break. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Moderator in bold. The Kaffeeklatsche is like a coffee hangout.
