Cost: Included with full conference and exhibits only registration.
Join Eric Smith (The Girl and the Grove), Ashley Woodfolk (The Beauty that Remains), Kati Gardner (Brave Enough), New York Times bestselling author Daniel José Older (Shadowshaper), and Lydia Kang (The November Girl) to discuss writing the book of your heart. The book of your heart is a tricky thing. It's close to you. What's it like, trying to get it published? Reading reviews? Is it harder to take criticism on a story that's personal, vs. something else? Join these writers in an open talk about their stories, and the challenges of bleeding out on the page. Signings to follow.
