NEW! Short Story Publishing Intensive for BIPOC Writers
The Short Story Publishing Intensive for BIPOC Writers is a capstone workshop is for BIPOC writers of various intersectional identities who have previous workshop experience, as well as a short story that has been extensively revised.

During this workshop, you will add the finishing touches to a single short story that has been significantly revised as well as write an effective cover letter. Through critical workshops of your manuscript, visits from guests who have extensive publishing experience, and professionals from the publishing industry, you will gain knowledge of publishing standards and trends that may help to increase the probability of your manuscript being accepted for publication. You will work with your classmates and the instructor to identify specific publications and/or contests to submit your short story. The class will engage in a submit-a-thon event at the end of the workshop. You will work with classmates and the instructor to identify specific publications and/or contests to submit your short story.
