The 2016 Sigma Tau Delta publishing panel features experts from the Twin Cities’ most-renowned independent publishers: Coffee House Press, Milkweed Editions, and Graywolf Press. The panel not only will discuss what beginning writers should know about publishing (submissions, rejections, book deals, and more), but also what students interested in a career in publishing should know (internships, jobs, expectations, and more). Our panelists include the publisher of Coffee House Press, a senior reader for Ploughshares (one of the nation’s best literary magazines), and an executive editor who has edited the work of Pulitzer Prize winners and Nobel laureates. Gary Dop’s book Father, Child, Water (2015) was published by Red Hen Press.
