BookCamp TO: Agenting Today

Those Torontonians, and visitors from across Canada, who have tickets to BookCamp TO on Saturday at Ryerson University can find me at the ‘Agenting Today’ session from 12.15 to 1pm.

BookCamp TO is put on by the CanBPA, the Canadian Book Professionals Association, a group who provides professional development and community building within the Canadian book industry.

‘Agenting Today’ will discuss the role of the agent, how it has changed in recent years, and chock-full of contributing questions from the group in attendance. Fellow agents fielding and encouraging questions include Sam Hiyate from The Rights Factory and Chris Bucci from Anne McDermid & Associates.

Tickets are sold out this year so if you are unable to attend do mark it on your calendars for next year.

One thought on “BookCamp TO: Agenting Today

  1. I’m always interested in learning about conferences! I’ll pass this on to my human. You may wish to consider visiting the Florida Writers Association Conference, October 21, 22, 23 in Orlando. Details are on the net. It would be great to have Canadian representation there!


What do you think? I love hearing from you!
