So, you have one or two finished pieces of writing (a short story, an essay, a poem, a chapter) and are wondering what to do next. The world of publishing can be vague and intimidating—how do I know where to send my work? What is an SASE? What should my cover letter say? In this three-hour seminar, we’ll answer all of these questions and more. You’ll walk away with an understanding of who is publishing what, what the procedures are for sending out your work, how (and why) you should keep careful records, and how to begin compiling your own writing résumé. Publishing individual pieces, such as stories, essays, or poems, is the first step along the path toward publishing a full-length book. It’s not a process that you’ll want to miss or skip over, and by the end of this seminar you’ll know exactly why. If you’re ready to begin the process of becoming a published writer, you won’t want to miss one-time crash course.
