We’re beyond thrilled to announce that we’re co-sponsoring this year’s Asian American Writers’ Workshop Publishing Conference! The event features representatives from The Wylie Agency, Little, Brown & Co., Other Press, Tweed’s, William Morris Endeavor, Sterling Lord Literistic, and Guernica; and is co-sponsored by our friends at VONA and Gotham Writers’ Workshops, Paragraph Space for Writers, NY Writers Coalition and Greenlight Bookstore.
From the website:
You’re a writer. We know it. You know it. We also know that sometimes the hardest part isn’t getting your ideas down on paper, but getting your manuscript out of the slush pile. It’s hard to know where to start, especially if you’ve got a full-time job or are raising a kid. The Asian American Writers’ Workshop hears you, and we’re putting on our second publishing conference. Meet veteran agents, editors and publishers, as well as writers who have scored choice book deals. They’ll share their trade secrets to get you on your way from solitary writer to bestselling author.
More on AAWW:
Established in 1991, the Asian American Writers’ Workshop is the preeminent literary arts nonprofit in NYC dedicated to incubating Asian American writers of tomorrow. We’ve spent more than two decades nurturing emerging writers of all ages to find their true voice and get published. We threw Pulitizer Prize winner Jhumpa Lahiri’s first and only book party. We were the first place to publish writers like NYT Bestselling novelist Jean Kwok, NEA Fellow R. Zamora Linmark, V.V. Ganeshananthan (Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers). We also gave important fellowships to emerging writers like bestselling novelist Monique Truong, bestselling novelist Monica Ferrell, and award-winning poet [and newest Apogee Advisory Board member] Cathy Park Hong.
