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 journey, 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.
