Inside Writing

Here we take you inside the world of writing and publishing from right inside your home.

For free.

Inside Writing is a Zoom talk show happening every Wednesday afternoon from 1-2 pm, Eastern Time—where three fascinating people (host, agent, writer) discuss the inside scoop on publishing and writing.

The host is Josh Sippie, the maestro of the Gotham Writers Conference. The guest agent and writer will be ever-changing, each episode focusing on a particular genre—memoir, novel, YA, SFF, etc.

Audience members will be able to ask questions.

And after each show, if you have a book project in the week’s genre, we invite you to pitch it on Twitter, with the hashtag #PitGotham (pitching tips). We’ll choose our favorites and pass them on to the week’s agent for feedback, which will also be posted on Twitter.

The best way to get “in the door” is to be on our mailing list, so you’re notified as soon as new sessions are posted.
