Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant

Curtis Chin is a Writer/Producer/Director/Activist and a co-founder of the Asian American Writers’ Workshop. His memoir “Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant” about growing up Asian American in the Black and white city of Detroit, and coming out in his working-class immigrant community, was recently sold to Little Brown and is due to be published in Autumn 2023.

Join Curtis Chin for a 1-hour conversation online with host, Derville Quigley. Hear about his publishing journey to date, from initial pitch through to final draft, how he found an agent, sold his memoir to a leading publisher, and crafted a highly personal story into a universally relevant page turner.

Discover what makes a winning memoir proposal, how to gather endorsements and ensure your book finds its audience.
