How I Kept My Day Job & Became a Published Author (Inside Writing & Publishing)

May 12, 2011
7:00 PM
Adult Classroom

Registration required. Author and Booklist Online senior editor Keir Graff knows what it’s like to get a bad review—and what it’s like to give one. His unique perspective on publishing has been earned through years of hard work, serendipity, and sometimes painful trial and error. In this lighthearted and informative talk, Graff tells his own story of breaking into print while offering practical advice about getting published, starting with the question every writer needs to ask: “Will getting published make me happy?”
