Arts + Literature Laboratory | Getting Started with Publishing

June 26, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Are you ready to share your writing with the world but don’t know where to start? In this workshop, we’ll cover all the basics of how to start submitting your stories, essays, and poems for publication. We’ll discuss reasons you might want to publish, how to tell when a piece is ready to submit, the world of literary journals and writing contests, tips for giving your submission the best chance of being accepted, as well as resources for finding the right place to submit. We’ll also talk about the growing world of self-publishing and how you can get your work out into the world in less-traditional ways. Note: this class will focus on publishing short pieces like stories, essays, and poems. We won’t be discussing how to publish book-length work.
