      Cocktails and Real Talk with NYC Agent Beth Blickers

      Beth Blickers has over 20 years experience as an agent for playwrights, composers, directors and choreographers in New York City. She is currently an agent at APA (formerly of William Morris Agency and Abrams Artists Agency) and a national advocate for playwrights. She will sit down with Jacqueline Goldfinger to talk a little bit about agenting, how you know it’s the right time to approach an agent, and what to say when you do. Then we will have a moderated 45-minute Q&A following by an hour networking mixer where participants have a chance to chat with Beth and also with each other to meet collaborators who will help forward your work.
