About this course:

Participants in this workshop will gain understanding and practice for the literary journal submission process. Activities will include identifying personal publication goals, finding open calls that best fit your creative work, writing cover letters, and building submission trackers. Participants will have an opportunity to workshop a small packet of poems or flash pieces, or an essay or story under 4000 words in order to ready a manuscript for submission. The final session will be saved for submitting in real time and strategizing for the future.
