The Successful Poetry Submission
Join a Poetry Submission Package crash course with an assistant poetry editor for the literary journal Redivider. Students should bring in three poems they've been working on to read aloud in class. The first half of the course will be a writing workshop, and the second half will be spent revising and discussing submission strategies for the poems. We will discuss where to send them, what order to include them in, how to craft a CV, and many more tips and tricks along the way. This course is for anyone new to submitting poetry and interested in learning about the process of submitting. We will also discuss what it means to work on the back-end of a publication. What do journals look for when submissions come in? What will help you stand out? This course will require students to bring in work ready to be workshopped, and students will create a submission plan during class.
