Publishing and Career Graphic

One of the easiest ways to break into publishing is by having individual poems and short stories published in literary magazines. In this class, we'll discuss where to find and decipher market listings for small press and university literary magazines, proper manuscript formatting for poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, how to write a query letter to go with your submissions, and finally, how to submit your short works.

We'll also discuss what your long-game plans are and how to achieve them, whether it's compiling your poetry or short stories into a full-length manuscript (and how and where to send it), traveling to universities and literary groups as a visiting poet, participating in conventions and how to get invited to do so, or setting up readings, book signings, and interviews.
