Do you have a book in you? Find out how to turn the stories you’re covering into published books that can enhance your reputation and set you up for more prestigious jobs. Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Joan Didion, Carl Hiaasen and Susan Sontag are all great examples of journalists-turned-authors. This panel gives you a road map to publishing, from how to come up with book ideas to getting an agent and landing a deal. We also show you what kinds of books publishers look for from journalists, what sells, what doesn’t and how to decide if you should self-publish.
Moderated by: Ed Salvato
Panelists: Sue Green, Jeff Guaracino, Mark Segal, Linda Villarosa, Don Weise
