Seminar Description

You've got a poem, story, or essay sitting in a drawer or on your hard drive somewhere, and you've always meant to send it somewhere--but where? It all seems more complicated than it should be, and it's hard to know where to start. Journal rankings? Contests? Submission fees? Simultaneous submissions? Let's cut through all the confusion. Come with a piece of writing (or two, or three), and leave with a much clearer path to publication.

One session. Registration – $40
