I posted this discussion in the Fiction group, but wondered if it might be a better discussion within this group:
I have been pitching and querying agents for a little while now, and I'm wondering if it would be effective to attend a conference in the hopes of meeting people face to face. Are there any conferences that would be beneficial for a first time novelist with a completed manuscript to attend? Is there any way to get face to face introductions with agents as a means to further promote our work as writers? I kind of feel like I'm spinning my wheels at this point, and I'm just wondering if there is a more effective means of getting my manuscript in front of people. Any thoughts?
