YPG/AAP DISCOUNT: Slice Literary Writers’ Conference

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.


Slice Literary’s sixth annual writers’ conference will take place on September 10th and 11th 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 Pulitzer Prize nominee Karen Russell and Tin House co-founder Rob Spillman.

Panelists include: Stacey Barney (Putnam/Penguin), Isaac Fitzgerald (BuzzFeed Books), Mary Gannon (Academy of American Poets), Chris Jackson (One World/Penguin Random House), Kevin Larimer (Poets & Writers), Lisa Lucas (National Book Foundation), Paul Lucas (Janklow & Nesbit), Vanessa Mobley (Little, Brown), and authors Jade Chang (The Wangs vs. the World), Kaitlyn Greenidge (We Love You, Charlie Freeman), Lev Grossman (The Magician’s Land), Imbolo Mbue (Behold the Dreamers), among many others. Complete program information is at slicelitcon.org.

Slice is pleased to offer discounted admission to members of AAP and YPG. This offer allows admission to all panels throughout the weekend for $100 (standard rate is $350). Visit https://slicelitcon.org/publishing-community-discounted-rate/ for full information, and to enroll.
