From the writer’s desk to the bookstore shelf

Slice Literary’s fifth annual writers' conference will take place on September 12 and 13 at St. Francis College in downtown Brooklyn. Our panels and workshops will cover topics from the craft of writing (plotting, dialogue, characterization, poetry, and more) to the business of writing (pitch letters, landing a book deal, and beyond). Top editors, agents, and authors will discuss crucial steps to help launch a writer's career. But a book deal is just the beginning of a writer's professional journey. We invite leading professionals to offer trade secrets about how they transform a great story into a bestselling book (and what writers can do to help them get there).

Where: St. Francis College, 182 Remsen St., Brooklyn, New York

When: 10am – 5:45pm, September 12 + 13, 2015
