Submitting to Literary Journals
A one-day workshop. In this interactive seminar, we'll learn how to use the literary journal submission process to strengthen our writing. Topics include finding a venue, publishing in a hurry, handling rejections, and building on acceptances to find more writing opportunities. This is a space for many genres, including but not limited to fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

The class will open with a lecture presentation and Q&A session. After that, we'll each choose a piece of our own work and research submission venues for that piece using what we've learned. Finally, we'll write cover letters that tell each editor exactly why our work is a great fit for their journal.

Wednesday, July 17th 
6:00 - 8:30pm EST
On Zoom

Who Should Take This Class?
This workshop will appeal to anyone who wants to publish their work, including writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. This workshop is a great way for anyone early in their writing journey to start thinking about next steps.    

“Samantha Steiner’s ‘Submitting to Lit Journals’ course was just what I needed to kickstart my submissions to lit journals. I put off doing so because I didn’t know where to begin and what to expect in the process. Samantha offers helpful guidance on how to identify, organize, submit to, and manage both acceptances and rejections from journals. She leaves no question unanswered about the process with her own successful submission record serving as evidence of a method that works. After taking Samantha’s course, I now have a systematized strategy for submitting my work, and am ready and excited to get started.” - Terri Linton (Catapult contributor)

“Samantha is a writer bursting with information about the literary world. She takes care with her explanations and goes the extra mile to ensure that you really understand the process. She is a deep listener, reader, and thinker who is able to go deep into your text to see the meaning behind the meanings and will allow you to unlock your work’s greatest potential.” - former student

"I found this class so incredibly valuable. Samantha magically and enthusiastically took the anxiety out of submitting in a comprehensive presentation that led us, step by step, to understanding and demystifying the process of submitting to literary journals. She generously shared her own processes and made particular suggestions for each of us, based on how we described our own writing. I have already recommended her class to other writer friends. This class is fantastic. I'm so glad I took it." - former student
