Submitting our work for publication can be daunting, but it’s the fulfillment of all the hours we put in at our desks. In this workshop, you will get the opportunity to learn about the submissions and publication process from start to finish. Join Joshua Foster, a writer-editor with over a decade’s worth of experience on both sides of the publication process, and learn how to take a story or essay from your DOCS folder to the published page.

This five-hour course will operate two-fold. First, preceding the workshop, participants submit pages from a near-complete manuscript (any genre, 3-5 pages) in order to receive feedback from Foster and workshop participants--feedback designed to strengthen the piece and ready it for publication. During the second half of workshop, Foster will offer lessons on craft questions that arise in the submitted pages and share crucial information about the contemporary publishing scene. Topics covered include industry standards, cover notes, submission manager spreadsheets, strategies, and how to manage both failures and successes. Feel free to bring questions and concerns about the writing process and about publication, as there will be ample opportunities for the instructor to address questions.

After registering, please submit 3-5 double-spaced pages of writing to Joshua Foster by Saturday, February 24th, contacting him via this email address. Submissions will still be accepted after the Feb. 24th deadline, but pages received after this date are not guaranteed to be reviewed by the instructor. Submitting work is highly encouraged, but not required, to attend this workshop.
