It’s Not Who You Know: Tips for Publishing & Winning Prizes
As an unknown writer with no academic affiliation, many miles from New York City or L.A., Kelly Madigan struggled to get her work out into the world. Eventually, through trial and plenty of error, she discovered multiple tools that helped her acquire an agent, sift through book deal offers from major publishing houses, win prizes from literary magazines, receive a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and get invited to amazing locations to settle in and write for up to a month at a time – while they paid her to be there.
Kelly will share her knowledge of contests, agents, fellowships, publishing, platforms, and the amazing world of writing residencies.
