Random Writing Quote:

“Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart; confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.”

--Rainer Maria Rilke

SCWA SPEAKER: Elise Capron

Date: November 16, 2019

Title:"The Publishing Business"

Elise is an agent at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. In addition to handling her own list, she oversees the daily operations of the SDLA office. She is most interested in well-written narrative non-fiction (particularly trade-friendly history, cultural studies, and science) as well as character-driven literary fiction. 

Elise represents fiction that has unforgettable writing, a distinctive narrative voice, and memorable characters. She loves novels with an unusual or eccentric edge and is drawn to stories she has never heard before. 

She aims to work with writers who are getting their work published regularly in literary magazines and who have a realistic sense of the market and their audience. Her insights into the state of the publishing business and the submissions process for your book will be fascinating and valuable.
