Saturday Feb 18th, 1-5PM
Hosted by Women Who Submit
Women Who Submit invite us to gather for a Submission Party with food and drinks. We spend 3 to 4 hours together submitting our pieces to literary journals. Bring finished pieces of writing, your laptop, and some literary journals you’d like to share. At the beginning of the session we set goals for the day (i.e. “I’d like to submit to 3 places,” or “I’d like to finish my application to this residency). Whenever someone hits “send” we all cheer.
During the sessions at the WCCW, Submission Parties are open to all new members and include an orientation and guest speaker. The guest speaker (yet to be assigned) speaks on a topic relevant to publishing and writing. Past examples include “finding an agent,” “submitting to contests,” “rejection strategies,” and “working as an editor.”
Women Who Submit seeks to empower women writers by creating physical and virtual spaces for sharing information, supporting and encouraging submissions to literary journals, and clarifying the submission and publication process. Learn more at womenwhosubmitlit.wordpress.com
