From Lit Mag to Debut Book: Four SLICE Magazine Alums Share Their Publishing Journeys–the Setbacks, the Successes, and Everything in Between

6214, 6th floor

SLICE was launched by two book editors who felt that it was far too difficult for emerging writers to break into the industry. It has been our mission from day one to bridge that gap. So we’re thrilled to showcase SLICE alums who now have published books. If these writers were sitting in the audience, just beginning their professional journeys, what would they want to know? They will take you behind the scenes of the book world from a debut writer’s perspective to help you chart the best path possible for your own career.

Panelists: Jaquira Diaz, Author, Ordinary Girls; Matthew Lansburgh, Author, Outside Is the Ocean; Patricia Park, Author, Re-Jane; Kelly Sundberg, Author, Goodbye, Sweet Girl: A Story of Domestic Violence and Survival
