What Literary Journals Want You to Know
Thinking of submitting your fiction to a literary journal? Curious what goes on in an editor’s head? Eager to know what small changes could potentially bend an editor toward your favor? After participating as a judge and/or editor on several literary journals, committees, and judging panels, Milo Todd has some tips and tricks to help you gain interest from literary journals, contests, and other related submission opportunities. During class, there will be opportunity to ask questions, participate in writing exercises, and—if we have time—have your first page critiqued in real-time.
This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. 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!
