Sean Platt

Track 1: Genre Therapy

Track 2: True Collaboration

Are you working harder than you need to and getting fewer fans and sales in return? Across the thousands of writers that Sterling & Stone runs across, many are making one giant mistake that’s costing them plenty: spinning wheels by writing in the wrong genre or sub-genre. In this session, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt will take you through the “Genre Therapy” process they use internally to align authors with their best-fit genre, syncing writing superpowers with often-surprising new fields of fiction.

Sean Platt is an entrepreneur and founder of Sterling & Stone, where he makes stories with his partners, Johnny B. Truant, and David W. Wright, and a family of storytellers. Sean is the bestselling author of over 10 million words' worth of books, including the Yesterday’s Gone and Invasion series. Originally from Long Beach, California, Sean now lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and two children. He has more than his share of nose.
