Literary journals present both opportunities and development for writers: with shorter turnarounds, shorter word lengths, and broader scopes, many writers not only get their start writing for literary mags, but continue to do so to share their thoughts and experiences. Find out all about the ins-and-outs of literary journals, including how to submit, what to expect, and even how to participate through an extended Q&A session with our star-studded panel.

This evening will be run as a Q&A session and participants will be invited to submit their questions before and during the seminar.

This workshop will take place online. Detailed information for participation will be provided.
