Is It Time?: The When, How, and Where of Submitting Your Writing

from 50.00

Perhaps one of the most difficult tasks for a writer is deciding if a piece is ready to be shared with the world. When the answer is 'YES!' what happens next? How do you write that pesky cover letter? What do you include in your bio? And finally, where do you send the work that has stolen a little bit of your mind, heart, and soul? In this workshop, we will explore the when, how, and where of the submission process. We will share works that we hope are ready for publication, and look at the best of today's databases and submission resources. You will leave this workshop with a working cover letter and bio, and some newfound confidence. I have been published internationally and served as a contributing editor for both print and online publications. Submitting your work can be about as much fun as finding a job or a new place to live. I hope to convince you that getting published is one of the most rewarding and essential aspects of our art, and a hell of a lot easier than moving.
