First Conference? Read this.

Are people friendly, or are these things stuffy? (Very friendly. Very smiley. You’ll probably make more than a few friends.) Can I introduce myself to an agent if I run into them in the bathroom? Should I have print-outs of my manuscript ready to hand out? (Ahh, no. That’s called stalking.)

Have more questions or first-conference jitters? Have no fear! SCBWI has got you covered with this nifty piece. Also, McIntosh & Otis agent Christa Heschke is also here to help. She nails it with these great tips!
