April 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

What role do agents play for Christian writers? How important are they in this publishing climate, and at what stage of our writing careers? Do I or will I ever need an agent?

Can an agent make that much of a difference between whether I’m published or not? These questions and more will be answered by Cynthia Ruchti, an award-winning author who has worked with her agent for ten years, and who now also serves as an agent with Books & Such Literary Management, one of the most highly respected and successful agencies in Christian publishing.

Cynthia Ruchti tells stories hemmed in Hope through her novels, novellas, devotions, and nonfiction, and through speaking for women’s events/retreats and writers’ conferences/workshops. She draws from 33 years of experience writing and producing the 15-minute daily radio broadcast, “The Heartbeat of the Home.

Her books have received recognition from RT Reviewers’ Choice, PW Starred Review, Selah Awards, Christian Retailing’s BEST Awards, CLASSeminars Award of Excellence, Golden Scroll Awards, and more.

She serves as Professional Relations Liaison for American Christian Fiction Writers, is a board member of the Deliver Hope Ministry, and is part of the worship team at her church. She and her husband live in the heart of Wisconsin, not far from their three children and five grandchildren.
