    Writing Across Genres: A Panel Discussion

      Panelists: Mira Jacob, Alexandra Machinist, Lisa Pearson, and Hannah Tinti

      Moderator: Harriet Shenkman, poet, professor and WNBA-NYC board member. 

      Mira Jacob’s debut novel The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing was a Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers selection. Her graphic memoir Good Talk is forthcoming from One World in March 2019.

      Alexandra Machinist is a partner and literary agent at ICM Partners in New York City. She represents best-selling authors across all genres around the world.

      Lisa Pearson is the founder of Siglio Press, a small, fiercely independent press driven by its feminist ethos and its commitment to writers and artists who obey no boundaries, pay no fealty to trends and invite readers to see the world anew by reading word and image in provocative, unfamiliar ways.

      Hannah Tinti is the author of the novel The Good Thief, which won The Center for Fiction’s first novel prize; the story collection Animal Crackers, a runner-up for the PEN/Hemingway Award; and the novel, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley, a national bestseller. She teaches creative writing at New York University’s MFA program and is co-founder and executive editor of One Story magazine.

      Do you like games? Exploring the city? Learning about interesting places? Solving puzzles? All of the above?

      We do! That's why Saturday, April 27th, we're having a WNBA-NYC Scavenger Hunt! We're partnering with scavenger hunt startup Search Party to bring you an afternoon of fun challenges around the Lower East Side featuring literary and female-driven businesses. Use a map and a scorecard to discover locations that most interest you and your teammates, solving puzzles along the way. 

      After you finish the scavenger hunt, all the groups will mingle and share their experiences at a nearby bar, so the fun doesn't end when you've found everything!

      Stay tuned for registration details!
