Dennis Lloyd

In this 90-minute, open-format event, Dennis Lloyd will talk about university press publishing for writers of fiction, poetry, memoir, or regional-interest nonfiction. Following his short talk, Dennis will paricipate in a moderated Q&A driven mostly by questions from registrants. Come armed with questions: participation is strongly encouraged!
