FREE Breaking the Seal: Finally Submitting Work
Genres: The Writing Life
Open to all levels
Submitting work is daunting, for all sorts of reasons. Whether you're getting ready to submit work for the first time or the first time in a long time, the goal of this class is to help ease some anxiety. In this class, the instructor will share her own submission portals, rejection tracker, and personal submission and rejection goals. We'll also look at a few submission tools, both for short and long works, review examples of cover letters, and discuss some do’s and don'ts. Walk away with a clear submission goal(s) and the foundational tools to start submitting.
