Niko Pfund is the President of Oxford University Press. If truth is a defense, it is fair to describe him as savvy, knowledgeable, creative, open-minded, and entirely likable . . . and he knows a lot about the book business, too. So it was quite a coup when the Washington Independent Review of Books got Pfund to speak at its annual book festival. (Full disclosure: I’m on the board of directors and have published a book with OUP.)
The Conference takes place on Saturday, April 25, 2015, at the Bethesda Marriott at Pook’s Hill in Bethesda, Maryland. It offers a full day of conversations and panels with professional writers, agents, and publishers, along with an opportunity for aspiring authors to present their projects to an agent during face-to-face, one-on-one pitch sessions.
→ Some 25 literary agents will be participating in the conference (see list here).
