This is happening 7pm at BookCourt, Monday June 27.
Join Sackett Street Writers Workshop and the Minorities in Publishing podcast for a discussion and Q&A with publishing professionals.
About the Event:
What exactly is the difference between marketing and publicity? Will my editor hate me if I need more time on edits? What will an agent expect when I sign with them? How do I query an agent? How do I even get my foot in the door of publishing? Questions like these along with many others will be tackled in “The Realities of Publishing” talk moderated by Jennifer Baker (creator of Minorities in Publishing, production editor) with Todd Hunter (editor, Atria Books), Ebony LaDelle (marketing manager, Simon & Schuster), Diana Pho (editor, Tor), Connor Goldsmith (literary agent, Fuse Literary Agency), and Stephanie Jimenez (associate publicist, Riverhead Books) on their experiences as well as what to expect as someone climbing the ranks in publishing or as a writer entering the business. A Q&A will be held after the panel and wine will be served.
