As a writer who has been published in many different journals and books, Joan Gelfand has discovered some special tools that helped to build her percentage of acceptances and publications. We look forward to having her teach us about these techniques and how to maximize your chances of seeing your work in print.
1. What is a submission strategy and how does it help you get published?
2. Maximizing intangible resources such as networking and listserves.
3. Building a writers resume and how to use it.
4. Planning for the ups and downs of your writing life: creating your own writer’s support group.
Join us for this informative and important glimpse into what happens after you finish your memoir.
