The Society of Southwestern Authors Announces A Mini Conference

1255 North Stone Avenue in the Amethyst Room

To register: Go to
FURTHER INFORMATION available at the SSA October 19th Forum
(Please note that all pricing and details are identical for writers who wish to attend the Phoenix event on Nov. 21 or the Tucson event on Nov. 22. The events are virtually identical in schedule and faculty. Only the location is different. When you register, you will be asked which workshop you want to sign up for.)
$99 — EARLY BIRD sign-up pricing! $99 is the base price for registration to one event and access to all workshops, all day. (Cost goes up to $119 after Nov. 1, 2014.)
Add $29 — to secure a 10-minute one-on-one meeting with one of the literary agents. Use this special meeting as a chance to pitch your work and get agent feedback on your pitch. (Spaces limited.) If they wish, attendees are free to sign up for two meeting slots at twice the price to give themselves a longer consultation/pitch, or to meet multiple individuals.
Add $59 — for an in-depth, personal critique of your one-page query letter from instructor Chuck Sambuchino. (This rate is a special event value for Arizona Writing Workshop attendees only.) Registrants are encouraged to take advantage of the critique, because if you are meeting with an agent/editor at the event, you’re essentially speaking your query letter aloud to them. Wouldn’t it be wise to give that query letter (i.e., your pitch) one great edit before that meeting? Once a query critique is ordered and paid for, the letter will be edited within 14 days once sent. That said, attendees who sign up and send their query letter to Chuck within four days of the event are guaranteed to receive their edit the day before the workshop happens, so they can use the edits to better their in-person event pitch.
