Goat Hill Presents…
Join Goat Hill Writers for an engaging conversation that explores the relationship between writers and their editors. While the writer may toil alone at a desk on a work of fiction, the process involves far more collaboration than many think. Join best-selling author Ann Hood as she talks about the writing process with her W.W. Norton editor, award-winning poet and bestselling memoirist Jill Bialosky (Poetry Will Save Your Life; History of a Suicide), and W.W. Norton award-winning fiction writer Akhil Sharma (An Obedient Father; Family Life).
