With Cheryl Klein
So you’ve written something, you think it’s stellar, and everyone in your writing workshop thinks it's stellar. Now what? This workshop will provide an overview for writers of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction who are ready for the “next step.” We will discuss finding the right outlet for your work, seeking and gaining the interest of an agent, querying literary journals and independent presses, and presenting your work publicly at readings and other events. We will also discuss online publishing and recent changes in the publishing world.
