Ready to press submit? Come learn the nuances of submitting to literary journals and magazines. With a focus on paying markets, we will go over the basics: finding the right journals for your work, creating a Submittable account, writing a cover letter and author’s bio, navigating tiers of rejection and conditional acceptances, budgeting for submission fees and applying for submission fee funding, as well as record keeping, assessing payoff, and goal setting. Writers will leave this class with lists of journals to check out, drafts of cover letters and author bios, plans to help them take next steps, and additional resources. We will pause for a lunch break, and there will be time reserved for Q&A.

All classes listed on the Loft website take place in Central Standard Time (CST); make sure you understand your time zone, and adjust accordingly
