Writer and Senior Literary Agent, Paula Munier (pro-nounced, "moon-yay") and New York Times bestselling author William Martin will share hard-fought insights that they've learned throughout their years in publishing and what they know works in today's market (they maybe didn't work years ago).

On Saturday you'll focus on everything that goes into writing a great book--from the idea, to the plot, to the execution and more. On Sunday you'll spend your time learning about pitching, selling and promoting. It's an event you won't want to miss.
