Get on this Workshop's Waiting List.
Workshop Instructor: Tasha Cotter

This workshop is ideal for poets, short fiction, and non-fiction writers who are interested in submitting their work to literary journals and magazines for publication. We’ll go over all the basics, including, but not limited to how to decide what to submit, writing a concise cover letter, and why familiarity with literary journals and magazines is important if you want to get published. This workshop is great for beginners and intermediate students. If time permits, we’ll also discuss how to keep your submissions organized (best practices); simultaneous submissions and the importance of reviewing submission guidelines.

Learning objectives:
1) Identify work that’s likely ready to be submitted verses work that’s not quite ready
2) Discover several websites and publications that provide calls for submissions
3) Develop a concise 2-3 sentence, 3rd person bio
4) Learn how to prepare your file for submission (what to include and what not to include)
5) Gain an understanding of “submitter’s etiquette” – how to put your best foot forward
