R253. Amazon Publishing Presents Little A Authors and the Craft of Memoir

Room 14, Tampa Convention Center, First Floor
Thursday, March 8, 2018
3:00 pm to 4:15 pm


How do you explore country, globalism, and family and make one cohesive story? How do you decide which memories to trust? What’s it like to talk about personal experiences with fans on Twitter? How do you promote memoir in the digital age? Join the authors behind Little A, Amazon Publishing’s literary imprint, for a conversation about their memoirs and the path to publication. Authors will share their stories.



Nancy Balbirer's first memoir, Take Your Shirt Off and Cry was published by Bloomsbury in 2009. She wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed solo-show, I Slept With Jack Kerouac and Other Stories. Her latest memoir, A Marriage In Dog Years, will be published by Amazon's Little A in 2018.

Cinelle Barnes is a memoirist, essayist, and educator with an MFA from Converse College, and she is a part of the Kundiman and VONA communities. Her writing has appeared in Lit Hub, South 85, Skirt, Hub City Press, and Your Life Is a Trip. Her debut memoir, Monsoon Mansion, arrives in 2018.
