Demystifying the Submission Process (for BIPOC)
Finding and submitting to creative writing opportunities—literary journals, fellowships, residencies, or grants—can often feel daunting. You may find yourself asking, "Where do I look?" or "What work should I include?" We'll uncover resources and offer tips for making the most out of your application, and you’ll develop a strong artist statement, bio, and project proposal that will help you stand out. In the last week, we'll celebrate with an interactive submission party. We’ll work together to find the best opportunity for you and cheer you on as you press "submit!"
