Do you want to submit your stories, poems, and essays to literary journals, but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’ve already submitted to a few places, but a handful of rejections has you doubting if you’re on the right track. This class will streamline and demystify the sometimes confusing submission process for you. We’ll cover researching and targeting markets, formatting work, how to interact with editors, whether to enter contests, decoding vague rejections, and what happens when you get accepted. After this fun and information-packed class, you’ll be ready to charge the world of publishing. (Note: Not for book-length publishing).

All levels welcome!  There is a minimum of eight students for the class to proceed, so please register soon!
