Poetry Publishing: Journals, Chapbooks & Collections with Amy Holman via Zoom

4 Thursdays, May 13 – June 3, at 4-6 PM EST via Zoom. Class will be taught online via Zoom. Zoom link will be sent via email at the time of registration. Please contact admin@writerscenter.org with any questions.
The focus of this workshop is to identify the markets for your writing on the individual and collected levels, teach you to be savvy about publishing contracts, and realistic about your involvement in the success of your work. To get chapbooks or full-length collections accepted for publication, at least one third of the poems should be previously published in literary journals and/or anthologies. Participants should be at the stage of putting together a book or have one ready to send out, and be familiar with sending poems out for publication. Amy Holman will teach you how to research, read, and evaluate the editorial interests at literary journals, micro, small, university, and independent presses, and how to develop your community/audience.
Tickets for this 4week class are $250. Please register at:
