Breaking Into the Literary Fiction Market

The path to publication for unpublished writers of literary fiction can be different than for commercial fiction. Christine Sneed, one of Chicago’s foremost literary authors and creative writing lecturers, delivers an in-depth lecture on how to submit literary works to periodicals, how to find an agent, and how to approach an independent press.

Christine Sneed is the author of the novels Paris, He Said and Little Known Facts, as well as the story collections Portraits of a Few of the People I've Made Cry and The Virginity of Famous Men.

    She has been published in The Best American Short Stories, O. Henry Prize Stories, New Stories from the Midwest, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, New England Review, and a number of other periodicals. Her books have received AWP’s Grace Paley Prize in Short Fiction, Ploughshares' Zacharis prize, the Society of Midland Authors Award, the Chicago Public Library’s 21st Century Award, Book of the Year from the Chicago Writers Association. 

    Sneed is the director of MA/MFA creative writing program at Northwestern University and she’s on the fiction faculty of the Regis University low-residency MFA program.
