Submitting To Literary Journals with Samantha Steiner

    Saturday, June 26, 2021 at 10:00 AM until 1:00 PMEastern Daylight Time

    Instructor: Samantha Steiner
    3 hour VIRTUAL session on Saturday, June 26
    10:00 AM to 1:00 PM EST
    Workshop is limited to 15 registrants

    Course Description
    In this three hour intensive, we'll learn how to use the literary journal submission process to strengthen our writing. Topics include finding a venue, publishing in a hurry, handling rejections, and building on acceptances to find more writing opportunities. This is a space for many genres, including but not limited to fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

    The class will open with a lecture presentation and Q&A session. After that, we'll each choose a piece of our own work and research submission venues for that piece using what we've learned. Finally, we'll write cover letters that tell each editor exactly why our work is a great fit for their journal.

    Who Should Take This Class?
    This workshop will appeal to anyone who wants to publish their work, including writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. This workshop is a great way for anyone early in their writing journey to start thinking about next steps.

    “Samantha’s session was warm, well-organized, and clear. Incredibly helpful!” - former student

    “Samantha Steiner’s ‘Submitting to Lit Journals’ course was just what I needed to kickstart my submissions to lit journals. I put off doing so because I didn’t know where to begin and what to expect in the process. Samantha offers helpful guidance on how to identify, organize, submit to, and manage both acceptances and rejections from journals. She leaves no question unanswered about the process with her own successful submission record serving as evidence of a method that works. After taking Samantha’s course, I now have a systematized strategy for submitting my work, and am ready and excited to get started.” - Terri Linton (Catapult contributor)
