You’ve got a final draft of your poem/short story/essay and you’re ready to send it out into the world. How do you get it published? This workshop will take participants through the lit mag/journal submission process step by step. We’ll navigate finding the right publications for your work and discuss the importance of reading and following submission guidelines. Participants will create a Submittable account and learn how to navigate the platform. We’ll read examples of cover letters and bios, and participants will write their own. From rejections to acceptances, from contests to contracts, this workshop will provide participants with a solid foundation of important knowledge for breaking into the publishing world, leaving them with a long list of lit mags and journals (local and national) to submit to, as well as the confidence to do so.
$60 General, $10 Camden residents & Rutgers-Camden students
