Maybe you have drafted a handful of chapters. Maybe you have an entire manuscript sitting on your desk. Maybe you already have the photo picked out for your book jacket. Now what? How do you put your story into the world? Come learn the ins and outs of the nonfiction industry with two writers who have recently planned, pitched, and published their own memoirs. Eliese Colette Goldbach and Annmarie Kelly-Harbaugh will share details from their own journeys to help aspiring writers on the path toward publication. They’ll talk about strategies for landing an agent. They’ll reveal the secrets of a winning book proposal. They’ll discuss the difficult task of marketing your work, and they’ll tackle the emotions that arise when your personal tale is suddenly available on Amazon. As both of these authors know, finishing a memoir is the easy part. It’s then that the real work begins. Sponsored by the Northeast Ohio MFA program.
