Chris Baty is the author of “No Plot? No Problem!” and founded National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in 1999 to inspire hundreds of thousands of people to attempt unleashing the book inside themselves. Many have not only succeeded, but dozens have eventually published their NaNo drafts, some famously so: “Water for Elephants” by Sara Gruen and “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern, among them. When he steps up for that lunchtime keynote, you won't want to be anywhere else.
You can catch Chris Baty as the inaugural Lunch Keynote at the 2012 Crossroads Writers Conference, October 5-7 in Macon, Georgia.
