Shop Talk Happy Hour

These tables are an opportunity to network and socialize with invited literary agents and editors. Shop Talk tables are groups of 2-3 agents and up to 3 attendees. There are at least two literary agents at every table and no more than four participants. You may reserve a seat in advance so that you’ll know exactly with whom you’ll be sitting. Halfway through the hour, we will break so that more informal connections can be made; the goal is to maximize the number of personal connections you can make with agents and editors.

The event venue is TBD, but will be near Park Plaza Hotel. To reserve a spot, you must request a 1st choice of table and pay an additional $75 tax-deductible fee as you register for the conference. Please note that the table configurations are subject to change; if a presenter is no longer able to attend the Shop Talk, GrubStreet makes every effort to replace that person with a similar presenter.
