Sponsored by the Great Smokies Writing Program, the Community Writing Program of UNC Asheville
So you’ve written something—a story, a poem, an essay—and you think this particular piece is pretty good, really good, in fact. You have shown it to your dog, to your mother, to your writing group, and they all agree: This piece is ready to share with a larger audience. Now, how do you find magazines, literary journals, and other publications that are appropriate for your work? How do you create a cover letter? How do you keep track of your submissions? Can you submit a piece to more than one publication at a time? When is it okay to follow up with an editor if he/she has not responded to your submission? How do you deal with and learn from rejection? This workshop will focus on strategies you can use to publish single works of fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, humor, and poetry as you make the leap from private writing into the wild and sometimes confounding world of publishing.
