ASJA 2016 Annual Writers Conference

Lynne S. Dumas Personal Mentoring Program

(Saturday ONLY): $60 additional fee

Trying to break into the magazine market? Need help making a query sing? Want to know how to get your nonfiction book published? Get answers and career advice from a professional writer. For $60, you'll get 30 minutes of face-to-face guidance from an ASJA mentor on the nonfiction writing topic you choose. Space is limited, so sign up early! Appointments will be scheduled Saturday mornings. 

Mentoring can jump-start careers. "I went to that meeting as a longtime newspaper writer, with no clue how to pitch anything," said ASJA member Laura Beil. "I followed what I learned about query letters and pitching to editors. I just completed a story for the New York Times (which made it onto the front page yesterday!) and got a Reader's Digest query accepted right away."
