Thank you Wendy Weil
Just this past summer, Taos Summer Writers' Conference once again had the pleasure of having Wendy Weil teach a weekend workshop on publishing and offer consultations. She has been an enrichment to the Conference over the past fourteen years and will be missed by all of us.
WEIL--Wendy E., 72, of New York City, died September 22, 2012 at her home in West Cornwall, Connecticut. Her career as a literary agent spanned over 40 years. After 25 years in book publishing, she founded The Wendy Weil Agency, Inc in 1986. A native of New York City, she attended Friends Seminary, and Wellesley College. Daughter of the late Leon and Margery Weil, she is survived by her beloved husband of 28 years, the painter Michael Trossman, her stepsons Josh and Andy Trossman, her dogs, and an enormous circle of friends, colleagues and authors who loved, respected, and sustained her. Donations in her name may be made to Teachers & Writers Collaborative. Plans for a Memorial Service later this fall will be announced.
