April 26 and 27, Lisa Akoury-Ross of SDP Publishing will be hosting a table at The American Society of Journalists and Authors’ (ASJA) conference, ASJA 2013: Fire Up Your Writing Career. The event is being held at the Roosevelt Hotel in NYC. If you’re at the event, stop by and say hello!
Every year hundreds of leading professional nonfiction writers attend the ASJA Annual Writers Conference at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. They seek fresh article and book ideas, a new crop of reliable sources, new tools and resources for their business, and overall networking opportunities. Joining these writers are scores of the most influential leaders in media, including editors, agents, publishers and industry leaders who come to interact with the writers they need.
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran, an enthusiastic rookie or somewhere in between, the 60-plus panels, workshops and special events at ASJA 2013 will supercharge your career:
- You’ll meet dozens of publishers, literary agents, book and magazine editors and other professionals who are eager to hear your pitches.
- You’ll hear the latest scoop on marketing and promotion, social media and self-publishing. If you’re just starting out or worried about your current newspaper job, a special series of beginner-level sessions will teach you how to begin freelancing, pitch stories, write book proposals and find the perfect agent.
- If you’re looking to diversify, we’ll have sessions on everything from journalism education, speechwriting and custom publishing to ghostwriting, biographies & memoirs and fiction. And much more!
