Next Meeting: May 25, 2014


On May 25, Drea Cohane will speak to the WCSC on what it means to be an agent in today's market. She'll discuss some of the changes she's seen in publishing since coming on the scene, and detail the ever-changing role of an agent within the publishing industry. She'll wrap up the talk by discussing what she's looking for in terms of queries/projects.

Query Workshop:
The workshop will be on how to perfect the query, and how this is the most important first-contact piece of writing that an author is ever going to produce. This is what determines whether or not their manuscript will be read/requested by an agent. She'll discuss what not to do, and what is the best approach for debut authors trying to get their work read.

Drea Cohane graduated from the Ryerson Publishing program and went on to do an internship at The Rights Factory. She was then hired on as an Associate Agent and has been working at the agency ever since. She also freelance edits on the side. Her roster consists of British, American, and Canadian clients. She resides in Toronto.
