10D: Many Paths to Publishing: On the Democratization of Literary Publishing & Finding YOUR Best Path
Limited Capacity seats available

When you begin the process of shopping your stories, essays, and manuscripts around the publishing world, it can be easy to feel that the paths are few and narrow. Novelist Sonya Chung (Long for This World, 2010, and The Loved Ones, 2016) will share her experiences in publishing novels with both a large corporate publisher and an independent micro-press, as well as her experiences with agents, publicists, booksellers, magazines, and as both a writer and editor at online literary sites. In this session you will not only hear about diverse paths to publishing, but also be challenged, and encouraged, to think more specifically and creatively about what might be the best path for YOUR work, regardless of what seem to be the common or mainstream routes. You will hear about publishing as a much more varied and vibrant community than perhaps you are aware.
