    Topic: What Editors Know About A Memoir That Sells

    What Editors Know about a Memoir that Sells opens the back door into the editor’s office. We identify the elements editors seek in memoirs to buy, and discuss dead give-aways that ensure your memoir won’t sell. We cover current trends in the commercial and medium-sized publishing houses.

    Presenter: Lisa Dale Norton, Editor

    About Lisa
    Lisa Dale Norton is an author, memoir editor, and public speaker. She is passionate about layered writing structures that reflect the complexity of life experience, and about the transformative power of writing a memoir. She is a gifted teacher, clear communicator and a pro at creating an environment were learning can happen.

    Lisa wrote America’s go-to memoir writing guide, Shimmering Images: A Handy Little Guide to Writing Memoir, and the literary nonfiction story Hawk Flies Above: Journey to the Heart of the Sandhills, which won comparisons to the writing of Annie Dillard.

    Shimmering Images: A Handy Little Guide to Writing Memoir is short, direct, humorous, and gives readers a step-by-step technique for mining the past and using shimmering image memories to construct a memoir. It’s been a perennial favorite in school systems and continues to sell well after nearly 10 years in the marketplace. Lisa teaches the process of writing from shimmering images in a variety of venues each year.

    Hawk Flies Above: Journey to the Heart of the Sandhills combines personal writing with natural history about the Sandhills region of the Nebraska. Lisa uses a return to the Sandhills to put her life back in orbit, but soon discovers the land itself needs healing: the waters of the Ogallala Aquifer are threatened by farming practices. Both books are published by St. Martin’s Press in New York.

    Lisa earned degrees from Reed College and the University of Iowa.

    Lisa lives in Santa Fe; Venice, Italy; and an 97-year-old writing cabin in the Western Sandhills. In Santa Fe she reads, writes her own stories, advises writing clients and edits their manuscripts, plays the piano, swims, and nurtures her beloved flower garden. Roses, columbine, iris, lilies, clematis, wisteria, and daffodils are just a few of her resident species. In Venice, she memorizes the labyrinth of calli daily as she walks, walks, walks, and takes her dose of gelato at Nico. She is an avid traveler in Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy with the goal of simply absorbing as much language, culture, art and architecture as possible. In the Sandhills, she works on new book ideas, walks the river in summer, rakes leaves in autumn, and annually ponders the wild geese, as they fly south, and then home again.

    Presenter: Rudy Shur, Publisher, Square One Publishers, Inc., NY


    Rudy Shur began his publishing career working for college textbook publishers: first with Charles E. Merrill Publishing Company and later with William C. Brown Publishing Company. He began working as a field representative and then became an associate editor. In 1976, he cofounded Avery Publishing Group, where he was responsible for the acquisition of over 1,000 nonfiction titles, many of which became bestsellers. By 1999, the company had grown into one of the largest alternative health publishers in the US. That year, Avery was purchased by Penguin Putnam.

    In 2000, Mr. Shur founded Square One Publishers in Garden City Park, New York, where he currently heads the editorial program. Over the years, Square One has been selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the fastest growing independent publishing houses in the country. He is also the author of How to Publish Your Nonfiction Book. Mr. Shur lectures extensively on the topic of publishing at numerous universities, colleges, and professional workshops throughout the country.

    Topic: Breaking in to a Traditional Publisher.
    Many writers of nonfiction works become frustrated when they send out their book proposals to publishing houses only to be rejected time and time again. By inadvertently doing the wrong things, they almost guarantee poor results. Fortunately, there are a number of steps they can take to maximize the odds that their proposals will be accepted by the best publisher for their work.

    Workshop Description:

By inadvertently doing the wrong things, they almost guarantee poor results. Fortunately, there are a number of steps they can take to maximize the odds that their proposals will be accepted by the best publisher for their work.

    This workshop explores the ten most common errors that writers make when submitting their proposals--errors that are likely to kill their chances of getting their material reviewed by an editor. It then presents nine rules that increase the odds of getting a nonfiction book accepted by an appropriate house that can produce and market it with success.
