Are you a poet, essayist or fiction writer? Have you been crafting beautiful work, but are unsure how to get that work out into the world? Do you have a goal of seeing your work in a top tier journal? Then join Women Who Submit cofounder, Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo, for a discussion and crash course in cover letters, tiers, submission calendars, tracking and resubmitting. Women Who Submit is a community organization created in response to the VIDA Count with the goal of raising women’s submission numbers and acceptances in literary publications. By creating a supportive community through submission parties, panels, and social media, WWS members have garnered acceptances from The Huffington Post, American Poetry Review, Hedgebrook, Prairie Schooner, The Rumpus, Al Jazeera America and others. This workshop is open to people of all genders and genres.
