Push to Publish: The 2012 Philadelphia Stories Conference

Friday, October 12, 2012

A week ago today I was sitting in this Florentine bookshop (of the Anglo-American variety) interviewing the owners for a forthcoming profile in Publishing Perspectives.  Our conversation canvassed many topics. We spoke, in part, about what qualities turn books into the kind book sellers can believe in.

At the annual Philadelphia Stories Push to Publish conference—happening tomorrow, October 13, 2012, Rosemont College, Rosemont, PA—writers, agents, editors, publicists, and readers will be having similarly intense conversations about the making, publishing, and promoting of books.  I'll be moderating the "Writing for Children and Young Adults" panel at 2:30, hosting the well-loved Nancy Viau, Catherine Stine, and Alison DeLuca throughout the hour-long conversation.  We'll be talking trends (and their antitheses), traditional publishing, e-publishing, and self publishing, slush-pile avoidance tactics, the art of the query letter, and craft, too.  We'll definitely talk a little about craft because, well, I can't help it.

We're hoping you'll join us.

Oh, this sounds fantastic. I wish I could go! You'll just have to tell us everything you learn. :)

It'll be fun! Looking forward to meeting everyone and answering questions.
