Sending creative work out on submission can be intimidating. How do you choose where to send your work? How do you know if it’s ready? Are simultaneous submissions expected, or the way to get yourself blacklisted? And what should your cover letter say, especially if you don’t have any published stories, yet? 

In this course, students will go from step one (including writing prompts to produce new work) to sending work out on submission. You’ll get practical advice, deadlines, lists of target publications, and feedback at every step in the process as you prepare your work and send it out. Workshops with classmates help you revise either new work or flash work you created before class began. This class is designed for writers who are new to sending work out, but open to anyone looking to boost their flash fiction submission output. 

Class Format

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!
