Getting Noticed 101 (2-part) - Remote!
With so many writers competing for contests, journals, agents, and acclaim, it can be difficult to get noticed. While a great piece of writing is important, you can still get lost in the white noise if you don’t present it (and yourself) properly. Lambda Literary Fellow, Pitch Wars Mentee, and Foglifter Journal Guest Editor Milo Todd provides insight on such topics as how to address your queries, who to tailor them to, how to tweak your writing in your favor, and why decisions often take so long. The first class will be largely informational and Q&A, while the second class will focus on helping students create and prepare their queries, pitches, lists, and/or other submission materials.
This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:
