I’m at the Writer’s Digest Annual Conference 2016 at the swank New York Hilton Midtown. Chuck Sambuchino has given “Pitch Perfect” tips, and more details on that and other topics will follow.

The Sutton Complex hall can hold up to 840 people. It certainly looked pretty full, with standing room only for attendees at the back, and more coming in all the time or due to attend over the next couple of days. The Conference program lists 64 participating agents and editors (most of them approachable by aspiring authors during the sold-out Pitch Slams and other Conference events), with more being added later. Here are speakers and topics. The conference, which began yesterday, ends Sunday. Stay tuned.
