In this 4-hour intensive workshop, participating writers will be guided through the entire process of submitting stories, poems, and essays for publication, from identifying markets to formatting manuscripts to knowing what to expect (and when) from editors.
In the process, this class will also provide opportunities to discuss the pros and cons of both print and online publication, research tools for evaluating markets, demonstrate proper etiquette and sharp communication skills, share tips and tricks for tracking multiple submissions, and manage both acceptance and rejection.
All in all, we will work together to demystify the business of publication and to remove those feelings of inadequacy, intimidation, and discouragement that stand in the way of getting what you want out of making your work available to a wider readership.
