Wayne M Hoeft

Principal Wayne is a lifelong reader, and a chatty Kathy who enjoys making connections with people across a spectrum of roles in the fine, literary, and performing arts. He is currently the V.P. for the not-for-profit Artists' Renaissance Collaborative, and oversees all new submissions. He enjoys both fiction and non-fiction. Partner Laura is a retired contract manager for the U.S. Dept. of the Interior, and the U.S. Geological Survey, and has worked in theatre since her teen years. She looks specifically for off-beat or unusual literary work that is often difficult to categorize. She is currently the Treasurer for the Artists' renaissance Collaborative, the Principal of the Goldbricker Group, and manages outreach for creative properties and creators. The Artists' Renaissance Collaborative was established in 2015 as a not-for-profit project to assist and encourage artists in the fine, literary, and performing arts in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. We expanded our scope in 2018 to offer services and assistance to the creative arts community in the Hudson Valley, in New York State. Our literary representation is not limited, however, by geography.

How to successfully present your work

We are looking for eclectic material of HIGH QUALITY! Step 1: reach out to us at artrencollab@gmail.com with a brief introduction, a BRIEF synopsis of your project, its current state of completion( partial, full, word count, etc...), your qualifications and expectations for the project. *If you are concerned about confidentiality, please let us know and we will provide an NDA for you. Step 2: We will contact you back as soon as possible either to express our interest OR to decline the project. Please wait until you hear from us. Step 3: We prefer digital copies in PDF of DOC, but do not prohibit paper copies. If you are in step 3 it means we have expressed our interest, and you will be receiving additional instructions at that time. Please be patient and polite throughout the process to insure that all of us have a pleasant experience, and remember that a "No" is not a commentary on the quality of your work; it may merely express our concern that we may not be the best candidate for your representation. Where possible, if we are a hard "No", we will reach out to others in the field to see if there is any interest in your work.
