Genres: Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, The Writing Life, Memoir, Novel, Short Story, Essay
Open to all levels
Submitting work is daunting. Whether you're getting ready to submit for the first time or the first time in a long time, our goal is to help ease some of your submission anxieties. We'll look at a few submission tools, both for short and long works, review examples of cover letters, and discuss the dos and don'ts of submissions. By the end of the course, each student should have a clear submission goal(s) and have the foundational tools to start submitting.
March 21: Registration opens for free classes.
