Long Island Agent/Editor Networking Luncheo


Recommended Posts

When: Friday, May 4th

Where: Woodbury, NY

 

Hello,

 

Please forward this to your membership, for an excellent opportunity for them to attend a low-key event and get to pitch to top agents and editors!

 

Long Island Romance Writers (RWA Chapter 160) would like to extend a warm invitation to you to attend the upcoming 21st Annual “Shining the Light on Romance” Editor/Agent Networking Luncheon. 

 

We have more than 20 agents and editors attending this popular networking event, which will be held on Friday, May 04, 2018, from 12:00-4:00 pm in the elegant Somerley Room at the Fox Hollow in Woodbury, New York

 

The cost to attend the Luncheon is $75 for non-LIRW members and $55 for members. For more information on the attending agents and editors, and to register, please go to www.lirw.org.

 

LIRW’s annual Luncheon enjoys a well-deserved reputation among industry professionals on the lookout for the next Nora Roberts or Janet Evanovich. It’s an outstanding opportunity for writers at all stages of their careers and across many genres to pitch or simply chat with editors and agents. Many authors made the initial contacts that would launch their careers at the LIRW Luncheon.

 

The guest speaker this year is Damon Suede. Damon grew up out-n-proud deep in the anus of right-wing America, and escaped as soon as it was legal. He has lived all over: Houston, New York, London, Prague. Along the way, he’s earned his crust as a model, a messenger, a promoter, a programmer, a sculptor, a singer, a stripper, a bookkeeper, a bartender, a techie, a teacher, a director… but writing has ever been his bread and butter. He has been happily partnered for over a decade with the most loving, handsome, shrewd, hilarious, noble man to walk this planet. 

 

Addictions: sweetness that isn’t sentimental, wit that isn’t bitter, strength that isn’t cruel. Allergies: professional victims, half-assery, clichés. Damon is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America and currently serves on its national Board of Directors. He also served as the 2013 president for the Rainbow Romance Writers, RWA’s LGBT romance chapter.

 

Though new to gay romance, Damon has been writing for print, stage, and screen for two decades, which is both more and less glamorous than you might imagine. He’s won some awards, but his blessings are more numerous: his amazing friends, his demented family, his beautiful husband, his loyal fans, and his silly, stern, seductive Muse who keeps whispering in his ear, year after year.

 

Note: We offer pickup and return to the local LIRR train station for those who wish to travel to the Luncheon from Penn Station in Manhattan. If you decide to stay overnight, Fox Hollow has hotel accommodations available (http://www.theinnatfoxhollow.com). We’re happy to provide a list of local hotels upon request.

 

In recent years the Luncheon has sold out early. We urge you to share the above information with the members of your organization, and if possible, to include it in your newsletter.

 

Feel free to contact us at luncheonlirw@gmail.com with any questions or concerns!

 

Thank you and best wishes,

 

Best,
