I’m pleased to announce I’ll be presenting a live webinar for the International Women’s Writing Guild for their Digital Village series! There is a fee for this 90-minute webinar, which includes plenty of time for live Q&A so I can answer any questions you may have about submitting to lit mags and journals. Registration rates are reasonable at $25 for members and $35 for guests.
The live webinar is on Sunday, January 12, 2020 from 7:00 – 8:30pm EST. Register even if you can’t attend “live,” because they will promptly email all registrants the recording of the session.
To prep for the webinar, check out the article I wrote about submission strategies on recently published on the IWWG blog:
Here’s an excerpt:
“The short answer is, if you want a strategy, if it helps you plan and manage your submissions and/or keeps you writing, then YES! There's no fancy formula for being more successful with publication. It varies from person to person based on their goals and priorities. Some writers want as many publications as possible to get their name out there and build up their C.V. or publication credentials. Others only want to submit to paying markets and contests to bring in extra income or based on the principle that they should always be compensated for their work. Some use publication to push themselves to be better writers and to participate actively in the writing community. And some writers have little interest in publication--choosing to use writing as a creative outlet or to share with family and friends. I've certainly weaved in and out of all these approaches over the years and there's nothing wrong with that either.”
