Get closer to the literary journals you admire with this specialized series of seminars. The Sessions with the Editor series offers insight into the featured journal’s aesthetics, archives, how to submit, and the editorial process– straight from the editors! In this informative 3-hour session, featured editors will talk about their journal and share their insights, including some of their favorite published pieces. They will also answer your burning questions about writing, editing, and submitting. These seminars are great for any writer interested in learning more about the editorial process for literary journals, or writers who are actively submitting.
On Wednesday, September 20th, get to know Hippocampus. Kristen Paulson-Nguyen, Writing Life Editor, will lead this informative session. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to submit to Writing Life; one student will be chosen for publication in the November column. In addition to hearing about Writing Life, students will receive tips on submitting to Craft, Interviews, and Reviews, and flash. Hippocampus Magazine (and Books) is an exclusively online publication set out to entertain, educate and engage writers and readers of creative nonfiction. Each issue features memoir excerpts, personal essays, reviews, interviews and craft articles, and is unique in the way it publishes books, and builds community around its magazine contributors.

Please be sure to check out our other Sessions with the Editor Seminars: Sessions with the Editor: Joyland with Evgeniya Dame on October 6th, and Session with the Editor: Foglifter Journal with Milo Todd on November 3rd.
