Click Submit: Submitters Workshop & Accountability Group

It's already September. And you know what that means. Literary magazines have opened submissions! How many times have you clicked Submit this season? What's holding you back? We all need accountability and a nudge now and then, and that's what this group is about.
In these eight sessions, we’ll compare notes, share our ups and downs, and support each other in submitting our writing. We'll 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.
