Novelist Elissa Schappell has joined our first Mediabistro Literary Festival & Workshops.
She will deliver a keynote presentation at the online conference and field questions from the audience. Among our long list of guests, Rebecca Skloot (pictured) will share some Unconventional Publicity tips and Constance Hale will offer Five Secrets for Wicked Good Prose. Here’s more from the site:
A contributing editor at Vanity Fair and founding editor of Tin House, Elissa Schappell brings a literary editor’s keen eye to her fiction writing. She is the author of two novels of linked stories, including Use Me, which was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award. Her latest novel, Blueprints for Building Better Girls, has earned impressive reviews. Kirkus Reviews writes: “Despite the talent for arch comedy that Schappell and her characters share, the tragic dimension of each story sears the heart.” In this LitFest keynote, she will discuss her work and take questions from the audience.
