Author Workshop with Scott Eagan


From 10:00 am until 1:00 pm

At West Branch Regional Library - ON ZOOM ONLY

1425 Chaffee Rd S, Jacksonville, FL 32221


Scott Eagan opened Greyhaus Literary Agency in 2003 with three goals in mind:

To remain a small agency focusing only on Romance and Women's Fiction; to provide educational opportunities for writers in these genres and to make efforts to enhance the romance and women's fiction genres; and to assist with increasing communications between the professional publishing community and the writers.

Being a small agency as well as being focused on a small number of genres gives him the chance to work closer with his writers as well as stay up with the ever-changing trends in romance and women's fiction.

Scott's education includes a BA in English Literature, An MA in Literacy, and an MA in Creative Writing. 

Scott is an active member of the Romance Writers of America and still dabbles in writing as a hobby.

Outside of the agency, Scott is an instructor with the UCLA Extension Program. He also provides critiques with Writer's Digest and does book reviews with Publisher's Weekly.

His family continues to keep him busy with one who swims competitively, one who rides Hunter/Jumper equestrian, and one who dances.  https://scotteagan.blogspot.com/
