Description

To writers who dream of publishing a memoir, essay collection, or other nonfiction book but don’t have an MFA or literary connections, the path to publication can seem out of reach. That’s certainly how it felt for Amanda Montell before she secured her first book deal in 2017. Only once she was on the inside did the secrets to the mysterious publishing industry become clear.

Now that Amanda has a critically-lauded book under her belt and a second on the way, she’s spilling all of her literary knowhow. This session will chronicle the nonfiction writer’s journey from idea to agent to proposal to publishing contract, revealing secrets you don’t even learn in writing school. Amanda will walk you through each step of the path to publication, providing tips and sample materials, followed by an open and honest Q&A.

This event is best suited for previously unpublished authors looking for insight into the nonfiction book publishing process.
