Northwest Christian Writers Renewal with Bill Myers

May 56, 2017  -  Westminster Chapel, Bellevue, Washington

Linda S. Glaz - Hartline Literary Agency

What Linda is looking for: A great romance, either contemporary, suspense, or historic. “I don’t connect with a lot of nonfiction, but would always be happy to have peek. And any other genre, if well-written, will certainly get my notice. Well-written…well-written…well-written. I’m not choosy as long as it’s…well-written. The most important thing being whether or not I have a place I can take it to. Just because I say no doesn't mean it isn't a great work!

NOT looking for children’s; also no hard copies, please, and no works that include any graphic sexuality or profanity.

What Bill is looking for: Most types of Christian books, including Christian living, devotional, marriage, family life, apologetics, biography, gift books, cookbooks, prophecy, humor, health, inspirational, political, social issues, women’s issues, men’s issues and adult fiction.

NOT looking for science fiction, fantasy, or youth.

Devotions must follow a specific format, as explained in their guidelines.

NOT looking for picture books, children’s/teen/adult novels, adult nonfiction books (other than parenting).

Ben Wolf - The Splickety Publishing Group

What Ben is looking for: Flash-fiction stories--concise, poignant fiction between 300 and 1,000 words--that fit one of the magazines' scheduled upcoming themes.


NOT looking for: previously published flash fiction; scenes or excerpts or synopses from novels; excessive violence, profanity, or erotica in any form; and no thinly veiled stories that preach from a soapbox of any sort--political, religious, or other. Additional submission guidelines are available on Splickety's website.


Jennifer Slattery - Guiding Light Womens Fiction

As a very recent addition to our editorial lineup, Jennifer will be handling her own appointment scheduling. E-mail her if you'd like to request an appointment during the conference.

What Jennifer is looking for
: Women’s fiction, especially those manuscripts that can cross over into the general market. Though the publisher will always release novels with strong Christian elements, for this imprint they’re looking for stories that don’t necessarily use Scripture or refer to God but that reveal truth in more of a parable fashion, such as showing the consequences of sinful behavior.

 

NOT looking for: nonfiction, children’s, YA, overtly religious women’s fiction.
