Tele-Connections gives Professional ASJA Members another way to make new ‎connections with people who value the work professional writers do.

Tele-Connections lets Professional ASJA Members meet one-on-one with editors, content ‎managers, literary agents, publishers and others in need of your writing skills. You may ‎find your next best client -- or someone seeking their next best client may find YOU. Hence, ‎Tele-Connections.‎

The 9-minute meetings are determined via a lottery system. There is no guarantee that any ‎of your picks will result in an appointment.‎

Once Tele-Connections is open for members, please use the registration form to make your ‎selections. Enter your email and confirmation number sent to you when you registered for ‎the event. Then, click on the Teleconnections tab on the top left and follow instructions to ‎select and rank your editor/agent choices. You may review or change your selections (until ‎signup ends on May 7, 2021 9:00 p.m. Eastern).

You can enter a minimum of 1 choice, maximum of 5, for a total of 5 possible appointments. ‎Please take care while making your selections that your skills and experience match what ‎the client has specified and that you request appointments only with people you are ‎genuinely interested in meeting.

There is NO advantage to signing up early. All selections made during this sign-up period ‎have an equal chance for an appointment. And there are no guarantees; remember, this is a ‎lottery. Please also know that especially in this uncertain, COVID-19 era, editors may show ‎up late or not show up at all. We have no control over this, but should it occur, we'll make ‎our best effort to reschedule your meeting on another day. Please remember: Tele-‎Connections appointments are business meetings. Your appointments take priority over ‎other activity at the time. Make your selections with this in mind.‎
