More From the In Box

From Randy Dotinga via Facebook:

asjaHello fellow sci-fi fans! If you’re a current or aspiring sci-fi writer, listen up. The annual writers conference of the ASJA, North America’s leading association of freelance writers and non-fiction authors, is debuting something new this year: a special three-session track about how to succeed as a fiction author.
The sessions include a panel about making it as a sci-fi/fantasy writer featuring Sheila Williams, editor of Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine; Shawna McCarthy, sci-fi/fantasy editor and agent; and sci-fi/fantasy authors Victoria Strauss and Richard C. White.
All the fiction sessions (the others are on mystery/thriller and young adult/children’s writing) will teach writers at all levels about what’s selling, what isn’t and how to break in.
These sessions are scheduled for April 26, the second day of our conference, which overall will feature 60+ panels and workshops, a keynote luncheon, receptions, exhibitors, a Pitch Slam and more. You’re welcome to register for one or two days (or three if you’re an ASJA member).
The ASJA is a non-profit association run by professional writers and dedicated to helping independent writers survive and thrive.
Our registration fees are quite reasonable compared to other writer conferences in NYC, the center of the American writing world. If you’re just starting out and low on cash, apply for the stipends we’re offering for low-income writers. And we have special rates for students.
More than 600 writers, agents, publishers and editors are expected to attend. Hope you’re one of them.
