Meet Chip MacGregor, the literary agent speaking at Terroir on How to Create Your Author Brand

March 6, 2017


We’re excited to be hosting Literary Agent Chip MacGregor, owner of the MacGregor Literary Agency from right here in Oregon.

When he was in first grade, Chip hurried home one day and announced to his mother, “When I grow up, I’m going to be a book guy!” He clearly could see the future —from high school literary magazine editor to writing bestselling books, from speaking at writing and publishing conferences to representing renowned writers, Chip MacGregor is a book guy.

A popular writer’s conference speaker, Chip has presented workshops at more than 200 publishing conferences, spoken at colleges and universities, and is frequently invited to speak to writers groups around the country on the topics of writing and publishing. He earned his BS with High Honors at Portland State University, earned an MA with Honors from Biola University, and did his doctoral work at the University of Oregon in Policy and Management, focusing on organizational development. He later did a post-doctoral semester at Oxford University. Chip has been written up in numerous writing and publishing related magazines and newsletters, is frequently asked for his opinions on trends in the publishing industry, and his blog is regularly on the list of Writers Digest’s “101 Best Websites for Writers.”

Chip will be speaking about a topic we haven’t covered at the Terroir Creative Writing Festival yet — “How to Create Your Author Brand.” While his agency is not currently accepting submissions, we hope that you will bring your most important questions to the festival about how to position your work in the marketplace.
