Online festival to connect writers of all levels

Always wanted to meet other writers or learn how to get an agent? This summer could be your chance -- and you won't have to leave home. Mediabistro is holding an online Literary Festival & Workshop from July 16 - August 1, 2012. Join writers from around the world to collaborate, workshop your projects, and celebrate the written word with accomplished authors, editors, and literary agents.

You'll be immersed in the literary and publishing worlds with keynote speeches from insiders. Plus, you'll get your work edited by an author in one of our small-group workshops. At the festival, you'll learn:

  • Secrets to book publishing success from New Yorker writer Susan Orlean
  • How to stay motivated with author and psychologist Sarah Fine
  • How to use social media to market your book project with GalleyCat editor Jason Boog
  • What agents look for in a pitch with Movable Type president Jason Allen Ashlock.

Festival registration includes access to one writing workshop. Topics run the gamut from literary fiction writing to memoir, YA novel writing, mystery writing, sci-fi, and romance, among many other topics.
