Received and In-Progress: Demystifying Submissions and the Publication Process

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For all levels of experience with publishing. We’ll discuss researching journals and how to decide if your poems are a good fit; good submission practices; cover letters and follow-up inquiries; how editors read submissions and communicate with submitters; the usefulness of rejections and what to do when you receive “we’d love to see more of your work” rejections; how journal issues are crafted; and literary citizenship. Panelists include poets who have also worked as editors and are able to share insight from both sides of the publishing equation. Discussion will be shaped by audience questions.
