Slice Literary Conference – Brooklyn, NY

This is way overdue, but what the hell… July 18th I landed in NYC to attend my first literary conference, put on by Slice – a Brooklyn-based literary journal that seeks to bridge the gap between emerging authors and the publishing world (http://www.slicemagazine.org/).
