#YPGDigital and YPG Writers Present: Your Guide to Online Writer Communities
Whether you’re an editor, an agent, an aspiring writer, or just someone who’s interested in understanding new trends in publishing, this panel is for you! It’s no secret that the journey to becoming an author is no longer as simple as sending a manuscript off to an agency slush pile. We’ll take a deep dive into the recent phenomenon of writer communities empowering writers to publish, explore, and revise their works online. This new dynamic has an impact on our industry and the way authors are discovered, acquired, and published. We’ll have a panel of experts who run their own communities talk about this trend in-depth, providing their insights in addition to advice for how young writers can best take advantage of these online platforms. Join us on Wednesday, May 20th from 6:30-8:30pm at Penguin Random House (1745 Broadway, Room TBD).
