Launched in 2007, Slice is a nonprofit print magazine based in Brooklyn that “aims to bridge the gap between emerging and established authors by offering a space where both are published side-by-side. In each issue, a specific cultural theme becomes the catalyst for articles and interviews from renowned writers and lesser known voices alike.” (The current issue, pictured, focuses on the theme of “villains.”)
This fall, Slice will begin a series of in-person writing/publishing workshops, We Who Write. Says the magazine’s website:
In a new series of classes and workshops developed exclusively by Slice, aspiring writers will have a chance to work directly with leading literary agents and editors. Writers will develop their own work and gain an insider’s view of the book world. We’re launching the series with a fiction workshop this Fall led by Kate McKean, a renowned agent from the Howard Morhaim Literary Agency […] A small group of writers will work with Kate McKean to develop their personal fiction projects and sharpen their writing skills, with a particular eye toward the professional publishing world.
The workshop, held in New York City, begins September 15, 2010, and meets for three hours per session for eight weeks. Writers interested in applying can find more information here.
