Here are our agent and editor VIPs attending in 2021!

Please read carefully. To help you choose the most appropriate agent or editor for your free pitch or consultation session, the information below lists the genres they are interested in, and the ones they aren’t. These genres have been directly confirmed by the agents and editors themselves. If you see contradictory information on other sites, ignore it.
