Network and socialize with invited literary agents and editors at the Shop Talk Happy Hour! Tables are groups of 2 agents/editors and up to 3 attendees. Partway 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. To reserve your spot at this event, request your table and pay the additional fee ($125) as you register for the conference.

The Shop Talk Happy Hour will take place on Friday, May 10th, 2024, at a location to be announced. 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.
