YPG Discount: Slice Literary Writers’ Conference
Slice Literary’s fifth annual writers’ conference will take place on September 12th and 13th at St. Francis College in downtown Brooklyn. Panels and workshops will cover topics from the craft of writing (plotting, revision, short stories, and more) to the business of writing (pitch letters, landing a book deal, and beyond). Top editors, agents, and authors will discuss crucial steps to help launch a writer’s career. But a book deal is just the beginning of a writer’s professional journey. Slice invites leading professionals to offer trade secrets about how they transform a great story into a bestselling book (and what writers can do to help them get there).
This year’s feature talk is a lunchtime conversation between New York Times bestselling authors Leslie Jamison and Nicole Krauss. Panelists include: Jessica Sindler (Random House), Sarah Bowlin (Henry Holt), Katie Freeman (Riverhead/Penguin), Brigid Hughes (A Public Space), Maris Kreizman (Kickstarter), Vanessa Mobley (Little, Brown), Benjamin Samuel (National Book Foundation), Rob Spillman (Tin House), Eric Simonoff (WME), Michelle Brower (Folio Literary Management), Meredith Kaffel Simonoff (DeFiore & Company), Lisa DiMona (Writers House), Paul Lucas (Janklow & Nesbit), Renée Zuckerbrot (Renée Zuckerbrot Literary Agency), Kevin Larimer (Poets & Writers), and authors Dani Shapiro (Still Writing), Porochista Khakpour (The Last Illusion), and Rebecca Mead (My Life in Middlemarch).
