POC Publishing Bootcamp
Hosted by Asian American Writer's Workshop
This summer, AAWW launches our first POC Publishing Seminar: an intensive dedicated to guiding emerging writers of color through the publishing process. You’ll hear from a panel of literary agents about how to get an agent: Alia Hanna Habib (Gernet), Serene Hakim (Ayeshe Pande Literary), Rachel Kim (3Arts), Rebecca Nagel (The Wylie Agency), and Quressa Robinson (Nelson Literary). A panel of online editors—including Harpers’ Hasan Altaf, Catapult’s Megha Majumdar, The Nation’s Bijan Stephen, Broadly's Sarah Burke, and The New York Times Magazine’s Jeannie Choi—will talk about how you can get your work published. In between panels, you’ll get to spend a ten minute breakout session to meet with a panelist to discuss your writing career goals.
As a writer of color, you know that finding mentors and a writing community familiar with your world is invaluable, but the publishing world can be notoriously hard to break into. Designed by veteran literary agents, the POC Publishing Bootcamp will demystify the publishing industry for emerging writers of color of all ages and genres, and connect you with industry gatekeepers.
General Admission: $75.00
