Marketplace Keynote: “Selling Out Without Selling Out”
How can we writers make money while maintaining our artistic integrity? How can we sell out our books without “selling out?” Join a spirited group of authors as they discuss different approaches to the tension between art and commerce. What compromises have they made "for the money?” What routes have they refused to take, despite their financial appeal? Come ready for a lively, provocative conversation.
