November 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Submitting to Literary Journals with Maren Bradley Anderson and Rachel Barton
WWotR-Corvallis and Coastal Chapters of Willamette Writers invite you to join them on Zoom on Monday, November 23 at 6:30 PM for this opportunity to find out more about submitting work to literary journals. Does submitting to a literary journal seem scary? It isn’t. Let two literary journal editors tell you the not-so-secret secrets to submitting to a journal. Maren Bradley Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of The Timberline Review, and Rachel Barton, Editor-in-Chief of the Williwaw Journal, will talk about the importance of reading submissions instructions, why familiarizing yourself with a journal’s body of work is a good idea, and how the inner workings of an all-volunteer journal affect your chances of being published. Learn how literary journals work from the inside. Discover how to learn what editors are looking for and, thereby, what types of things to send to each editor. And learn how to avoid common, instantly rejectable mistakes.
