Points to Cover When Meeting with an Agent for the First Time

In-person events such as writers conferences can be a great place to meet with agents face-to-face. Most conferences have some sort of "meet and greet" or pitch event where writers get the opportunity to pitch their books to agents that are in attendance. Literary agent Eric Lincoln Miller of 3ibooks recommends writers come prepared to these meetings and avoid just reading your book or handing off your manuscript. You need to be confident, prepared to give the essential info such as word count, genre and subgenres, and book summary. He believes being direct and succinct is a good approach.
