Practicing our craft is how we become writers; knowing how to “sell” that craft is how we go pro. In this course, you will dive into: accountability and productivity methods for your individual work style; how to effectively submit to journals, pitch editors, and query agents; how to gracefully follow up with promising leads; and the ins and outs of marketing, networking etiquette, and what it means to be a literary citizen.
