ASJA's 46th Annual Writers Conference
Date: May 5 & 6, 2017
Location: Roosevelt Hotel, New York City
Conference Chair: Estelle Erasmus
Request for Proposal
The American Society of Journalists and Authors is the oldest membership organization of nonfiction writers, authors and journalists.
What sets ASJA apart from other writing conferences is our experienced membership and educational programming.
The NYC Conference’s theme for 2017 is Pivot. Publish. Prosper.
We are currently soliciting proposals for sessions, panels and workshops that will inspire, motivate and empower journalists, nonfiction and literary nonfiction writers at all stages of their careers. Emphasis will be put on professional development as it relates to our theme, i.e. workshops on pitching, making “pivoting” career moves that lead to increased income, publishing in all its aspects, from books, to magazines, querying agents, putting together an anthology, making six figures.
What We Are Looking For In a Session Proposal
We prefer workshops that focus on craft and those with a “how-to“ aspect. We want single session leaders who are experts in their field, as well as savvy in social media. And we seek out panels that offer real service to our attendees.
We are also looking for diversity in panelists: racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, marital and parental status.
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. THIS FORM IS NO LONGER COLLECTING DATA.
Please note that we are unable to offer monetary compensation for travel or presenting. All participants must be available during the entire two days of the Conference, May 5th and May 6th, as scheduling will be at the discretion of management
