Wednesday’s Work-in-Progress: Helping You Publish Your Work

As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, my travels this season include a quick trip to Philadelphia on Saturday, October 13, when I’ll be the guest of Big Blue Marble Bookstore (and Apiary Magazine) for a reading at 3:30 p.m. And before the reading—starting at 2 p.m.—I’ll be leading a workshop for writers who want to learn how to publish their stories, essays, and poems in literary magazines.

I spent a chunk of time last weekend preparing an extensive handout; we’re going to cover a lot! The handout includes an extensive list of resources, including a few notable recent items that I think will enhance the discussion we’ll be having (and perhaps even spark a debate or two). I thought I’d share those articles/posts with all of you, too.

  • “Poetry Magazine Submissions: How to Do Them Right,” by Robert Lee Brewer
  • “Rabbit Season or Duck Season: A Guide to Submissions,”  by Michael Nye
  • “Three Stories Unlikely to Make it Beyond the Slush,” by Joe Hiland
  • “The Red Flags of Writing Contests,” by C. Hope Clark
  • “The Value of Three: Writing for Non-paying Markets,” by Chris F. Holm
  • By the way, you don’t need to register for the reading, which is free and open to the public, but we are asking anyone interested in the workshop (at a bargain price of just $35!) to pre-register. Details here.

    2. Thank you for sharing your materials! Wish I was going to be in the Pennsylvania area this weekend–would have loved to attend your workshop!

    3. Very sorry that neither of you can make the event. Thanks for the comments!
