How to Come Out as a Writer

Introductory | We will discuss strategies for transitioning from a secret hobbyist writer to a “professional writer.” Class participants will get the inside scoop on how to submit work to literary magazines, small presses and contests, create writing bio’s and CV’s, as well as develop solid writing practices that will support, inspire, and affirm. The class will also include a daily writing prompt and examples from some of our favorite professional writers.
