Between Art and Commodity: Writing Upmarket and Literary Fiction
May 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Libbie Hawker, who also writes under the pen names Olivia Hawker and Libbie Grant, is a bestselling author of upmarket historical and literary fiction. Her presentation will include a discussion of what “literary” means, how to find a profitable niche as a stylistic writer, and why you shouldn’t be afraid to “write pretty” no matter what your genre or your publishing goals. She’ll also share some of her experiences as a working author in upmarket and literary spaces, and her impressions of the current market for more prose-focused writers.
