Conference Spotlight: The Indiana Writing Workshop

I’m exciting about teaching some sessions in Indianapolis this November (especially since it’s so close to my hometown of Cincinnati). It’s all part of the Indiana Writing Workshop on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014, which is an all-day event designed to give you all the information you need to know to move forward and get your book published. Read on to learn much more about the event, including the two agents and one editor in attendance taking pitches from writers—Jen Karsbeak of Foreword Literary, Whitley Abell of Inklings Literary and Andrew Scott of Lacewing Books.

The Indiana Writing Workshop is an all-day event (10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014) at the Nora Branch of the Indianapolis Public Library. Address: 8625 Guilford Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46240, (317)275-4470. There are a limited number of seats at the event, with a cap of 75 registrants.


The following publishing professionals will be at the event taking pitches and meeting with writers:

  1. Agent Jen Karsbaek of Foreword Literary.
  2. Agent Whitely Abell of Inklings Literary
  3. Editor Andrew Scott of Lacewing Books & Engine Books

Between the three faculty members, there is virtually no genre or category they do not represent. All faculty will be taking part in the “Writers’ Got Talent” panel, where attendees’ first pages are read out loud anonymously, and they offer their thoughts on the work. More info about the faculty is available on the workshop page.
