The opportunity to have personal, fifteen minute appointments with Editors, Agents, Mentors or PR/Media Professionals is a valuable highlight of the conference. These provide a great way to learn first-hand about the writing industry, to pitch your manuscript or work-in-progress, and to brainstorm ideas, get encouragement, and benefit from industry professionals.
All appointments are available on a first-pay, first slotted basis. Appointments will be scheduled by the Conference Appointment Coordinator, Casey Miller. You will select multiple choices for your appointment needs when you register for the conference.

WYNN-WYNN MEDIA was formed in 2001 by Jeane Wynn and her husband Tyson. Jeane began in publishing in 1989, working in sales at NavPress. She was soon promoted to a team that developed and launched Clarity magazine, while also doing marketing work for Discipleship Journal and Current Thoughts & Trends.
Since then, Jeane has worked in various positions in publishing, which have given her a well-rounded view of the industry, which is essential as she navigates the ever-changing world of publicity. Before starting Wynn-Wynn Media, she hired and worked with a number of publicists in her capacity as a marketing manager.
Wynn-Wynn Media thrives due to a combination of Jeane’s love of good books, her personal care and attention to the authors who create them, and her understanding of all aspects of publishing, from acquisition to editorial to sales to marketing. Wynn-Wynn Media is a full-service publicity firm, and the Wynns work with the entire spectrum of media, including print and electronic publications, television and radio broadcasts, podcasts and live online radio, websites and blogs, social media such as Facebook and Twitter, and other emerging media tools to ensure the best and most opportunities for their clients.
Some of Wynn-Wynn Media’s latest campaigns have seen clients recognized on the New York Times, USA Today, ECPA, CBA, and Christian Retailing best-seller lists.
At Wynn-Wynn Media, we strive for integrity, creativity, deliberation, and consistency every day for every client.
