At the NCWN 2018 Spring Conference, Anne will lead “How to Start Submitting.”
You’ve worked hard. First draft. Edits. Reviews. More edits. Second and third and more-than-you-can-count drafts. You’re ready to publish your short stories, flash fiction, non-fiction essays or poems. Now all you have left to do is submit your work to journals or magazines. Simple, right? In today’s ever-changing publication landscape, figuring out where and how to send your work can be confusing and overwhelming. This workshop covers the submissions process from beginning to end with the overall goal towards publication.
The North Carolina Writers’ Network 2018 Spring Conference is a full day of workshops and sessions on the craft and business of writing. Around 125 writers will gather for classes and programming that includes faculty readings, open mics, Slush Pile Live! and more. 2018 NC Literary Hall of Fame inductee Jill McCorkle will give the Keynote Address.
