Wherever you are in the writing process, submitting your work can be a helpful light at the end of the tunnel! But the world of literary magazines and small publishers is so expansive and diverse, it’s hard to know where and how to send your work out for publication. In this workshop with Entropy Small Press Editor and former Denver Quarterly Assistant Editor Dennis James Sweeney, we’ll talk about which literary magazines and small presses are right for you, strategies for achieving your publication goals, and how to navigate the vulnerability of sending out the writing you’ve worked so hard on. You’ll leave the class with next steps for submitting your latest piece of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, or hybrid work. 

This informational class will also include written reflection, group discussion, and Q&A time. 

We’re all in this together! Join us if you’d like company in the exciting but daunting task of sending out your writing.

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:
