Running a Genre Magazine
To many writers, the inner workings of magazines are utterly opaque. Our panel of editors can give you insight into what things look like on their side of the desk: financial legal considerations, unexpected challenges, how to best promote authors' work. This panel is great for any author who wants to see how a magazine is made, especially if they're considering starting a magazine of their own!

Writing in the West from Outside
Sometimes building a writing career in your own country isn't feasible due to lack of markets, government censorship, other factors. However, working in the West has its own headaches: How do I navigate contracts across country lines? What visas can I get for events or foreign residencies? Do I really need an MFA? Authors will discuss what they find most challenging about publishing in Western markets what they wish they'd known starting out.
