Essay collections have a mixed reputation these days: It’s a golden age of essays! … but it often seems impossible to get a collection published. This session discusses the process, from beginning (How long should it be? How many essays should be already published? Do I need an agent? A theme?), middle (Where should I send this thing? What do I do while I wait?), to end (Do I need to worry about marketing? How can I get reviews?).

Essayist Randon Billings Noble and a possible second TBA speaker will share their stories, experience, advice — and encouragement!
