Is it possible for a new writer to break into the New York Times or New Yorker? Do I pitch a piece or write the whole thing and submit it? How do I get a literary agent? How do I sell a novel, short story collection, or memoir in this economy? A panel of top editors, agents, and authors, moderated by Overexposed author and writing teacher Susan Shapiro, will answer these questions and more.
Other panelists include: Thelma Adams, author of Playdate, as well as Adams’ St. Martin’s editor Katie Gilligan and William Morris Endeavor agent Rebecca Oliver; Foundry Literary Agent Brandi Bowles; New York Times editor Frank Flaherty, a professor at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and author of The Elements of Story: Field Notes on Nonfiction Writing; New Yorker editor Ben Greenman, author of What’s He Poised to Do; New York Times editor Dana Jennings, author of What a Difference a Dog Makes; Diana Kirschner, author of Sealing the Deal, as well as her Wendy Sherman Associates agent Kim Perel and Center Street editor Kate Hartson.
Ten percent of book proceeds go to the Goldwater Hospital Writing Workshop.
