You’ve written something and now you want to take the next step and get your writing published. Whether you are looking to submit to literary journals through Submittable or query agents with a book proposal, why not do it in the company of other writers while eating crepes?
Goal: To have every participant exit the session with at least 1–5 submissions in Submittable or with a solid plan for where, when, and how to submit in the weeks to follow.
First 30 minutes - This time will be designated for experienced submitters and newbies to air out whatever questions or concerns they have about the submission process. To save time, informative handouts with tips and FAQs will be distributed to those who want them. Before the 30 minutes is up, all participants will have an opportunity to share which genre they are working in and what goal they are working towards, whether it be to actively submit during the session or work on a monthly spreadsheet to better prepare for future submissions.
Remaining time - All participants will be asked to work independently and quietly so not to distract other participants from their personal goals. A moderator will be available to answer questions and check-in with participants on a rolling basis to ensure everyone feels confident, knowledgeable, and productive moving forward.
