About the Panelists
Zach Cox is a Literary Manager at Circle of Confusion, which represents the industry's top writers, directors, producers and actors. Zach has been with the management firm for over 12 years. He represents writers and directors. He started as an intern in the Fall of 2006 and became a manager by the Fall of 2010. Zach has an unquenchable thirst for character-driven stories regardless of genre and believes great storytelling is a gift that can be honed but not outright taught. If it were entirely teachable, he would be a writer and not a manager. Zach is a Sierra Nevada-loving Chico State graduate and Northern California native.
