Dirty Little Secrets: How Publishing Really Works

with Phil Sexton, publisher of Media Lab Books and former publisher of Writer’s Digest

Learn the nitty-gritty of what takes place behind closed doors at publishing houses, in meetings with bookstore buyers, and on the bookstore sales floor.  Join Phil Sexton for a morning session geared for newcomers to the publishing business (though experienced writers will find the session beneficial, too.) and an afternoon session “deep dive” into the publishing experience.  Plus lunch with Phil with plenty of time for Q&A.  Held at MONDO-Summit.
