WordSpace Writers Collective Submission Strategy Party
Wednesday, 6/23 10am-12pm PST
This offering will open up the topic of submissions: how to submit, where to submit, when is a piece ready for submission, what elements are involved in an industry-standard submission. We plan to build and shape the content as we go in a way that best serves your writing needs, the intention being to create a community who come together to demystify and de-scarify (my invented word, meaning, make it less scary!) this part of the creative process. And have some fun while we’re at it:)
Led by Éanlaí Cronin & Naomi Goldner
