Getting Your Word Out: Submitting, Publishing, & Marketing Your Writing
Anybody can write, but it takes a special type of determination to see your work through to print. In this workshop, we’ll discuss proper manuscript formatting for poetry, fiction, creative fiction, and journalism, and go on to discuss market lists, deciphering writer’s guidelines, dealing with rejection and rejoicing in seeing your work in print.
