Fire Up Your Writing Career April 26 & 27, 2013, New York City

ASJA's 42 nd Annual Writers' Conference now open for registration

NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Society of Journalists and Authors is convening in New York City this coming April for its 42 nd Annual Writers Conference, sponsored by the ASJA Educational Foundation.

ASJA2013: Fire Up Your Writing Career includes two full days open to the public, offering dozens of educational sessions focused on issues and topics pivotal to freelance writers. There will also be several social events designed to encourage professional networking. Anyone with an interest in freelance writing, for any market or medium, will benefit from this extraordinary gathering of industry professionals. As one attendee, Fred Minnick, said of the 2012 event, "I feel like writer Superman after that conference!"

Scores of sessions spread over two days cover topics of interest to freelance writers at all stages of their careers: just breaking in, scaling new heights, or keeping a good thing going. Attendees will choose from among 40 information-packed sessions on subjects including: finding new work, breaking in to new markets or genres, technology and social media topics, honing your craft skills, protecting yourself legally and financially, and even fiction topics. Personal mentoring is available, as well, allowing writers to get individualized career assistance on-site.

Friday's events include a gala luncheon with featured keynote speaker and ASJA member, A.J. Jacobs. A.J. is Esquire editor-at-large and author of New York Times bestselling books Drop Dead Healthy: One Man's Humble Quest for Bodily Perfection, The Year of Living Biblically, and The Know-It-All.

On Saturday one entire track of educational sessions is designed specifically for those new to freelancing. Sessions in the "Beginner's Pluck" track include Freelancing 101 for Newspaper Journalists, How to Write an Awesome Query Letter, Finding the Perfect Literary Agent and more. Other tracks called Career Compass, Know-How, and Market Focus offer top names in areas such as biography, op-ed, public speaking and speechwriting, and much, much more.
