My Memoir’s First Year: Lessons Learned by New Authors of Creative Nonfiction (Anthony Moll, Sarah Fawn Montgomery, Matt Young, Tyrese L. Coleman, Joseph Osmundson) Five new memoirists discuss what to expect when you’re expecting a memoir. This assorted group of writers with books published in 2018 will share their experiences launching their first memoirs: the expectations each had starting the process, the path from manuscript to book, the rollout and reception of each work, and the range of emotions that come with such a launch, from elation to melancholy.

Not Your Mother's University Press w/Anthony Moll, Kathryn Nuernberger, Kristen Elias Rowley, & Sophfronia Scott Determining where to submit nonfiction books in the mass of trade, academic, and indie presses is often more of an essayist exploration than the writing process itself. Writers who have published memoirs, essay collections, and hybrid texts with The Ohio State University Press will discuss how an academic press became the unlikely home for work that challenged genre conventions and examined complex subject matter like mental health, sexuality and the armed services, faith, motherhood, and race. This group of writers will discuss the experience of publishing with a university press, reading a section of their work before reflecting on their process, work with editors, marketing and release.
