3C: Essentials of Submitting Your Work FULL
Limited Capacity full

The first step to getting published is understanding how the whole process works. Publishing in literary magazines is a different ball-game than publishing a book, and successful writers ought to have a strong overview of the submission process for both. In this session, novelist Marjan Kamali and Fifth Wednesday Journal book reviews editor Angie Chatman will walk you through the similarities and differences of submitting work to literary magazines and to literary agents. We will cover submission ins and outs, pitfalls and preferences. You'll walk away with a realistic game plan for how to submit your work in both areas of the publishing business.
