WORD: Backspace Writer’s Conference starts May 31; scholarship winners announced

The annual Backspace Writer’s Conference will take place at the Algonquin Hotel in Manhattan from Thursday, May 31 to Friday, June 1. The event, which brings together best-selling authors, top literary agents and editors for a two-day, two-track event with panel discussions, workshops and socializing, will feature Publisher’s Lunch founder Michael Cader and author David Morrell as key note speakers.

Among the authors speaking at the conference are Joseph Finder, Jim Fusilli, Adrienne Brodeur and Backspace founder Karen Dionne, who recently had her debut novel sold by literary agent Jeff Kleinman.

A bevy of top literary agents will also speak. Kleinman, Scott Hoffman and Paige Wheeler of Folio Literary Management, as well as Katherine Fausset of Curtis Brown Literary Agency, Michael Bourret (Dystel & Goderich Literary Management) and Alex Glass (Trident Media Group) are just a few of the agents rounding out the lineup.

Registration for the conference is $315 for Backspace members and $355 for non-members. This year, an anonymous donor paid full-tuition scholarship to contest winners Allison Johnson and Torrey Meeks, who will attend the conference for free, Backspace announced.
