Join us for an informative session that will help you prepare for this year’s Northern Ohio Regional Conference (9/13-9/14).

For the first hour, agent Allison Remcheck of Stimola Literary Studio will provide guidance on how to prepare a manuscript for a conference critique and post-conference submissions.

In the second hour, board members will field questions related to the conference (or any other random questions you want to bring).

The session is free, but registration is required so we know how many people to expect.

Allison Remcheck

Allison has known what she wanted to be when she grew up—ever since the age of eight when she read in the back of a Baby-Sitters’ Club book that the author, Ann M. Martin, was an editor before she became a writer. She had no idea what the word “editor” meant—but she knew it had to be a person who read a lot, and she knew she wanted to work in publishing. She’s so lucky to say that she has only ever worked with books—a journey that has taken her from a library, to a bookstore, to a publishing house, and finally to the Studio—and books, particularly those for children, have been her lifelong passion. She believes there is simply nothing better in the world than putting the perfect book in a child’s hand. But there is something extraordinary in nurturing a book from the start, and seeing it find its place in the world. To Allison, being an agent is a bit like a treasure hunt to find the books that speak to her most easily. She finds herself drawn to voices that speak for themselves, stories that only the author can tell, and books that reflect the lives of every child—especially the ones told least often.
