About this course:
It’s always exciting to complete a short story, an essay, or a poem. Now it’s time to get your writing out into the world! But getting published can seem more intimidating than writing. How do you figure out where to send your work, and how do you withstand the inevitable rejection that comes with submission? In this three-hour seminar, we discuss the ins and outs of submitting to literary magazines, including how to target the best journals for your work, create a tiered submission plan, keep track of submissions, and follow up on “promising” rejections. We also discuss ways to keep yourself submitting despite rejection until you find the ideal home for your manuscript.
This course is held via video teleconference. Instructors use Zoom to offer live class meetings at the designated class meeting time. Students must be present at the course meeting time as each student’s final grade may include scores for participation.
Please inform your instructor if you will miss a class meeting. You are responsible for any class information you missed. We suggest you arrange with a fellow classmate to share their notes when feasible.
