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.
