Do you have a finished short story, poem, or essay, but the prospect of submitting it to journals and magazines is daunting? Or do you have a novel that’s ready to send to an agent? Maybe you're not sure where to begin, and submitting seems too difficult to figure out alone. Or maybe you know exactly what you need to do, but you can't seem to carve out the time to do it . . . or you just need some moral support as you click that "submit" button!
Join us at Writespace for an hour and a half of camaraderie and fun, as we help each other get our work out into the world. During the first part of the session, we will make goals, answer questions, and freely share the knowledge we've accumulated over the years. We will serve as sounding boards and cheerleaders and a friendly support system as we take steps forward together. Once we begin submitting, to encourage participation and friendly competition, Writespace will give away one $50 gift certificate to the writer who sends out the most submissions.
Those who come with a list of publishing outlets (whether blogs, magazines, journals, agents, or publishing houses) where they plan to send work will get ahead in the game, but if you need to do this research during the party, that’s great, too! Please bring a laptop or other Internet-ready device of choice; snacks, beverages, and music playlists are welcome too!
Our work deserves to be read and celebrated . . . let's make it happen!
