Limited Capacity seats available

It’s a truism by now that it’s harder than ever to get books published. But if you’re writing narrative or idea-driven nonfiction, self-help, or memoir, do you really have to be Ben Bernanke or Kim Kardashian to beat the odds? No—truth is, agents and editors are eager for great nonfiction stories because they sell. In this session, we’ll address seven key questions that will greatly improve your likelihood of finding success. In so doing, we’ll look at what "understanding your readers" (and how to reach them) really entails.

We’ll ask ourselves: So what? and discover what tricks to employ to make our stories more compelling. There will be plenty of time for Q & A and some on-the-spot exercises that will help you avoid common pitfalls.
