There are writing groups and critique groups… Why not a support group for submitting to literary magazines? In these eight sessions, we’ll meet to compare notes, share our ups and downs, and support each other in submitting our writing all over. We will also spend time learning more about the various parts of the submission process — researching literary journals, organizing a plan of attack, sending the work, and making sense of acceptances and rejections — as we build community and cultivate resilience. Get serious, connected, and perhaps even published with the guidance, structure, and help of this workshop and accountability group.
