In this course we’ll examine effective ways of submitting work to literary journals and magazines. We’ll also discuss emerging and established online venues, the use of blogs to showcase work, employment opportunities for writers, and suggestions for applying to graduate programs for further study. This course requires active participation. You’ll be asked to read your work in front of the class. At the end of the semester, we will have a group reading where members of the class will share their creative work with a wider audience.
