New Guest Speaker Added to Superstars Writing Seminar 2014

We are pleased to announce another great guest speaker and panelist for the upcoming Superstars Writing Seminar, February 6–8 in Colorado Springs, LISA MANGUM from Deseret Books and Shadow Mountain Press.

Lisa Mangum has worked in the publishing department of Deseret Book since 1997. She specializes in editing fiction for the Shadow Mountain imprint and has worked with several New York Times best-selling authors, including Ally Condie, James Dashner, and Jason F. Wright. While fiction is her first love, she also has experience working with nonfiction projects (memoir, educational, cookbooks, etc.) and some children’s picture books. She loves finding that “diamond in the rough” in the slush pile, and she is particularly skilled in the developmental editing part of the process. Lisa is also the author of four national best-selling YA novels (The Hourglass Door trilogy and After Hello). She graduated with honors from the University of Utah, and currently lives in Taylorsville, Utah, with her husband, Tracy.

Lisa joins other guest speakers Diana Gill from HarperCollins and Mark Leslie LeFebvre from Kobo, as well as the regular Superstars faculty of Kevin J. Anderson, Brandon Sanderson, Rebecca Moesta, James Artimus Owen, David Farland, and Eric Flint.

NOTE: Early Bird pricing for Superstars 2014 goes up next Tuesday, October 15.
