Discuss writing, publishing, strategy, and craft with an industry insider

Anica Rissi

45 Minute Program

 

$299


Discuss the art and/or industry of writing with a multi-published author who previously worked as an executive editor at three major publishing houses. The session can focus on in-depth craft conversations, industry insider knowledge, or both. No topic off-limits!

Whether you're writing your first children's book, polishing the fifth draft of a novel to submit to literary agents, or considering a career in publishing, Anica can offer guidance, insights, and advice pulled from her two decades of experience as an editor and author.

This interactive program is great for aspiring authors and editors, college and graduate students, writing groups, educators, and books clubs.
