What makes writers tick?
In this show on the Inkandescent Radio Network, you’ll learn the secret to selling your manuscript, whether self-publishing is a bad plan, and how some of the nation’s top writers have turned their ideas into best-sellers.
Some of the spectacular authors you’ll meet on this show include:
- Kate DiCamillo, the beloved children’s book author who in the last two decades has written 11 New York Times best-selling titles and sold 18.5 million copies worldwide. Her books have been translated into 39 languages, and two have been turned into major motion picture feature films: “Because of Winn-Dixie” and “The Tale of Despereaux.” In addition to winning the 2014 Newbery Medal, she has won the National Book Award (2001), the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award (2006), and the (Theodor Seuss) Geisel Award (2007, 2011). DiCamillo is also the 2014-2015 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature — which means this celebrity author is making the rounds to meet kids across the country.
