The process of submitting your work to literary journals is daunting, and sometimes simply confusing, to every writer. What should a cover letter say? What writing grabs an editor and what makes us start to skim? How does one kind of rejection stack up against another? And most of all, just what in God’s name do editors DO with your work once you press “send?”
Tin House Magazine editor and Madison Writers' Studio co-founder Michelle Wildgen will give you the low-down about sending out your work to lit mags. Join us for a discussion of how the editorial process works, do’s and don’ts of sending out your work, what really matters and what you can stop worrying about.
Fiction writer Chloe Benjamin and poet Angela Voras-Hills will share their own submission practices and experiences. There will be plenty of time for questions both big and small.
