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.
