Feeling good about your writing and finally ready to take the next step toward seeing it in print or online? This one-night session will cover the basics of how to find the right press or journal for your work, how to make sure you’re maximizing your chances of success and how to keep track of your submissions. Learn why it’s essential to follow submission guidelines to the letter, celebrate your rejections (yes, your rejections!) and be persistent. This class will focus on publishing poetry and prose with small presses and independent journals.
