Written a book? Have an agent? This conference is for you

My friend Ron Hogan writes:

"For the last six months, I have been working to put together a new writers' conference with the Center for Fiction here in New York -- a conference that deals specifically with the issues that writers face AFTER they've created a great story and found an agent who can help them sell it to a publisher. In this rapidly changing economic climate, it's as important for authors to know about the business side of publishing as it is about the artistic side of writing, so, with generous co-sponsorship from Fordham University's Creative Writing Program, we've created a one-day conference filled with panels designed to immerse people in the practical side of the publishing industry."

The event will be held on Saturday, June 27, at Fordham College at Lincoln Center. See the conference Web site for details.
