Just Hit Send: Submitting to Literary Journals with Sally Simon

So you’ve written some stories and / or poems and have revised them until you can no longer look at them. What now? How do you get your words into the world? In this six-week workshop, you’ll learn the ins and outs of submitting your fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction to literary journals for publication. 

We’ll explore: How to know when your work is ready to submit; how to research prospective journals; how to write a cover letter and bio; how to format your submissions; what the readers/editors look for (and their biggest pet peeve); how to keep track of your submissions; and how to handle acceptance and rejection. During each online Zoom session, the instructor will share best practices and answer questions. Assignments will be given over the course of the workshop so that each participant will be ready to submit one story by the end of week 5. The goal of the workshop is to have each participant submit at least one piece of writing to a literary journal, and have the knowledge to submit in the future on their own. This workshop is open to all writers who wish to begin submitting their work for publication.
