Do you Write Children’s Fiction, YA, Mystery, Sci-Fi, or Historical Fiction or Nonfiction? Well Then, Meet the Robinsons

October 8, 2013

If you write any of these genres, we invite you to make an appointment with traditional publishers AJ Robinson or JoAnn Robinson of Cricket Cottage Publishing at October’s “Greatest Writers Conference on Earth” sponsored by FWA.

Interviewing directly with a publisher is a special opportunity. While most traditional publishers consider only agented submissions, during the conference, publishers on the faculty have agreed to meet with clients directly—without the filter of an agent. All you need to do is make an appointment.

JoAnn is looking for children’s, middle-grade, and adult mysteries. No romance or spiritual. AJ is looking for YA, science fiction adult, and science fiction YA.

AJ is also an FWA Regional Director, and he ran the bookstore for FWA’s annual conference with JoAnn for over seven years.
