Memoirist and novelist Brad Land discusses the process of publishing with a major press, including contracts, royalties, editing process, having one’s book made into a major motion picture and more.
Land studied creative writing at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where he received his MFA, and Western Michigan University, where he served as nonfiction editor of Third Coast. He has been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony and now lives in South Carolina. His first book, Goat: A Memoir, received widespread praise from critics for the author's remembrance of the impact violence had on his life. A contributor to USA Today called the book "a raw and engaging account," and Boston Globe critic DeWitt Henry wrote that Goat "reads as credibly as first-rate fiction." It was made into a major motion picture in 2016. His second book, Pilgrims of the Earth, was published by Random House.
