    • “Using Your Story for the Greater Good” – An author’s personal story often provides the unique hook for their book, but memoir is not the only—or necessarily the best—way to use that story. This session will help you discern your purpose for putting your story to paper and finding the best genre through which to do it. Who do you hope will read your book, and what do you hope they will gain from doing so? We’ll look at a variety of story-driven non-fiction books and talk about ways to use your story to provide the most meaning and value for the reader.

    • Writing and Selling Fiction vs. Nonfiction – Selling a fiction or non-fiction book project to a traditional mainstream publisher requires different approaches. Whether you are a first-time unpublished author or a seasoned one who has been around the publishing block once, twice or more times, the industry rules and guidelines must be adhered to in order to be able to get your feet through the door. In this session, Literary Agent Leticia Gomez will explain in great detail what these established rules and guidelines are. She will also discuss precisely what sample material components are must haves and what is the best way to package them up in order to secure the publishing deal of your dreams.
