Polyphony H.S. 2-day National Editor Training Workshop, 2
Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at 6:30 PM - Friday, August 9, 2013 at 4:00 PM (CDT)
Polyphony H.S. is a literary magazine that publishes poetry, fiction, and literary non-fiction written and edited by high school students. Based in Evanston, Illinois, Polyphony H.S. has an editorial board of over 100 students from across the globe that provide extensive and thoughtful feedback on every piece submitted. We publish the very finest young authors from the English speaking world.
Our work is based on the belief that the development of the creative voice depends upon close, careful, and compassionate attention. Helping young editors become proficient at providing thoughtful and informed attention to the work of their peers is essential to our mission. We believe this important exchange between young writers and editors provides each with a better understanding of craft, of the writing process, and of the value of putting words to their own lives while preparing them for participation in the broader literary community.

The 2-day NET workshops provide in-depth editorial training and mentoring by professional writers and editors. Participants will given an overview of the three genre areas accepted by the magazine, including poetry, fiction, and literary non-fiction, and will receive hands-on editor training using our online submissions program, Submissions Manager. Participants in these summer NET Workshops will automatically serve as Second Readers on the National Editorial Staff of Polyphony H.S. for the 2013-2014 volume season. The workshop fee is $550, and also includes a welcome meal for editors and their families, breakfast and lunch daily, as well as readings by Chicago-based authors. Out of town participants will be housed with local editors at no additional cost.
