You’re invited: live broadcast of The 2016 Creative Nonfiction Writers’ Conference!


Hey Behind the Prose Peeps!

I’m super excited to tell you that I’ve teamed up again with Creative Nonfiction Magazine to bring you three amazing podcasts from the Creative Nonfiction Writers’ Conference on May 27-29, 2016 in Pittsburgh, PA.

Last year, I brought you an excerpt of Lee Gutkind’s presentation at the conference and this year we’re tripling the writing goodies! Creative Nonfiction plans to offer a portion of each day’s events in a podcast via Behind the Prose.

Check out the lineup!

FRIDAY, MAY 27th // 2pm EST
Listen live as CNF’s founder and editor, Lee Gutkind, discusses “Structure for Longform Nonfiction.” Whether you’re writing a memoir, a journalistic book, or a longform essay or article, this master class will explore several options for organizing and sustaining a longer narrative.

SATURDAY, MAY 28th // 2pm EST
On Saturday, join us live for our “Ask an Editor” panel. Editors from Creative Nonfiction, Kenyon Review, and Health Affairs will be answering questions from the audience and Twitter (use hashtags #cnfwc16 and #askaneditor).

SUNDAY, MAY 29th // 2pm EST
And on Sunday, check in for “Write this Way: Find & Develop a Niche in Your Writing.” This pre-recorded roundtable discussion, featuring three freelance writers whose bylines have appeared in the New Yorker, BuzzFeed, MTV News, Slate, Fast Company, and National Geographic News, will focus on narrowing one’s interests, building a personal brand, and creating your own beat.

I sure hope that I meet you this weekend at CNFWC ’16  (there’s still some slots open!), but in case you’ll be tethered to your desk at home or work, we got you.
