Look what’s happening at the 2024 Washington Writers Conference!

Panel in the Spotlight: “Nonfiction: From Proposal to Publication”

Writing a proposal is only the first step of your nonfiction project. These award-winning authors will share their journeys from proposal submission to published book. Journalist, editor, and novelist Sara Fitzgerald is author of the forthcoming The Silenced Muse: Emily Hale, T.S. Eliot, and the Role of a Lifetime. A professor at Johns Hopkins University, Lawrence Jackson lists Shelter: A Black Tale from Homeland, Baltimore among his recent books. During a journalistic career that included 20 years with the Wall Street Journal, Neil King Jr. traveled extensively; American Ramble: A Walk of Memory and Renewal is his first book. And serving as moderator is Mary Collins, who has taught nonfiction writing for 30 years and, in 2023, published an experimental collection of essays and watercolor paintings called A Play Book: Creating Writers, Creating Citizens.

Find out what these pros have to say about creating your life as a writer! Afterward, stick around to buy — and have them sign — their works from our official onsite bookseller, DC indie Busboys and Poets!
