Writers are increasingly required to wear more than one hat. Our Friday keynote, Jessica Strawser, knows all about that, and she’s happy to share with you what she’s learned on her unique journey in The All-Time Best Writing Lessons Learned From a Decade of Interviewing the All-Time Best Writers, at the Pennwriters Friday Keynote Dinner. Jessica is an energetic force in the publishing industry. Now editor-at-large for Writer’s Digest, Jessica served as editorial director for nearly a decade. She became known for her in-depth cover interviews with such luminaries as David Sedaris and Alice Walker. She’s the author of the book club favorites Almost Missed You, a Barnes & Noble Best New Fiction pick, and Not That I Could Tell, a Book of the Month selection now new in paperback. Her third novel, Forget You Know Me, released to raves in February 2019 (all from St. Martin’s Press).
In addition to her keynote speech, Jessica will sit on a read & critique panel, and is teaching two workshops: Building Suspense by Acting Out of Character & How to Become a Regular Contributor to Any Publication. #Pennwriters2019
