Submissions Support Group

This course is designed for writers new to submissions who want to familiarize themselves with the process while learning from, and sharing experiences with, their peers. By breaking down the phases into actionable steps, we'll help writers hone their submission skills and explore the emotional aspects of the process, such as healthy striving and recovering from rejection. Although the coursework will be relevant across genres, we'll focus on submitting to literary magazines or independent presses, rather than seeking literary representation.

Registration dates:

December 5: Scholarship Donation Day (Learn more.)

December 6: Member registration opens

December 13: General registration opens
