Arcadia University’s Writers Return to Campus Presents Frankie Diane Mallis, Oct. 15
Glenside, Pa.—Friday, Sept. 9, 2010—Arcadia University’s Writers Return to Campus presents Frankie Diane Mallis ’09M, a Philadelphia-based author, on Friday, Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in Grey Towers Castle. Arcadia University is located at 450 S. Easton Road, Glenside, Pa. The event is free and open to the public.
As a graduate student in the master’s in English program at Arcadia, Mallis wrote her first novel, Stolen, which landed her a literary agent within a year after graduation. Her writing genre is fantasy for young adults.
Mallis will speak on “Breaking Into the Biz: Everything I Wish I Had Known About Publishing.” She will discuss the process of getting into the publishing industry, prepping your manuscript, the importance of networking, branding, attending conferences, querying, pitches and what happens once you land an agent. Her first novel manuscript is currently on submissions with editors.
She is currently working on her second novel, as well as teaching. Mallis writes frequently on her blog, Frankie Writes, as well as with her critique group, composed of fellow Arcadia alumni, The First Novels Club.
