When it comes to submitting work for publication, there are countless hurdles along the way. Just researching opportunities can be exhausting and overwhelming! This four week class will focus on breaking down and demystifying many of the common barriers. You’ll get feedback on which publications might be right for your work, gain (and share) editorial contacts, and learn practical methods for tracking submissions and deadlines. Attendees will take turns bringing work to the group for feedback and guidance, and will leave with a new network of like-minded writers. Whether you’re a seasoned writer with many publications under your belt or a newby wondering where to begin, this workshop will help you level up.

I know someone who shoots for one hundred rejections in a year, because if you work that hard to get so many rejections, you’re sure to get a few acceptances, too.’ This small piece of advice struck a deep chord in my fragile creative ego…”
