The Porch: From Story to Submit - Publishing in Literary Magazines

This class is designed for writers and poets who are seeking to publish in literary journals but are finding the path to publication daunting and/or difficult to navigate. In this session, we will discuss when, how, and what to submit to (which) literary magazines. As published or unpublished writers, we’ll revise our work, craft bios and cover letters, demystify Submittable, organize our submission calendars, decode rejection letters, and discuss the pros and cons of publishing online or via a traditional medium.  This class is for writers of all levels.
