Women in Jeopardy

For those of you going to AWP this year, I’ll be moderating a panel. Here’s the details… I hope to see you there.

R141. Women in Jeopardy: Crime Fiction, Thursday, 10:30 A.M.-11:45 A.M., Wiliford B, Hilton Chicago, 3rd Floor

Moderator: Jane Cleland. Panelists: Danielle Egan-Miller, Jamie Freveletti, Julie Hyzy, Joanna MacKenzie

Three best-selling and award-winning crime fiction writers and two top literary agents will discuss the role gender plays in their trade. Are tough gal detectives taken as seriously as tough guy detectives? What does the popularity of female-oriented subgenres like chick lit and cozies and crossover categories like YA paranormal say about the market? With e-publishing sweeping across the genre, are women authors in more or less jeopardy than before? How can new writers break into the field?
