NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Do you have a dream of being the next Stephen King or the next Mary Higgins Clark?

Well, you might want to plan on attending the Writer’s Conference coming up Saturday, June 4 at the City University of New York‘s Hunter College.

WCBS 880′s Pat Farnack asked organizer Lewis Burke Frumkes why it’s so tough to become a successful writer.

“Legion are the people who start novels. Few are the people who finish novels. Sure, you can publish anything. But who will read it? So, the idea is to get published with a good e-house or a good print house and try to get the most exposure you can, and the most exposure is global. And so you need a literary agent to represent you,” Frumkes explained.

The Writers’ Conference will have big name authors to strategies on improving networking and how to get a literary agent.

The keynote speakers will be Nelson DeMille, author of The Lion, and Walter Mosley, author of When the Thrill is Gone.
