Day & Time: Sunday, 1:00 – 4:00 pm, April 29
Description: Maureen Fielding and Louise Bierig are planning a Spring Submission Sunday Workshop for writers looking for support and encouragement with submissions.
Do you have a bunch of stories/personal essays/poems you’ve written filed away on your computer, or in a drawer, just waiting for that special day when you’re going to do something with them? Stop waiting for that special day and make it happen now.
At Submission Sunday workshops we learn the basics of submitting, then submit our work to as many venues as we can in an afternoon. Not sure where to submit? Don’t worry, I provide current Calls for Submission, as well as plenty of resources to check out.
Bring your best writing, a laptop computer, and your derring do. Let’s start submitting together!
