Behind every great writer is a bunch of editors, publishers, designers, publicists and other highly-skilled people who help twist meaning from that writer’s words, present those words as best as possible, and share them with the world.

Any aspiring writer would do well to understand exactly how these people function. Doing so can help your chances of publication, especially in literary journals, where so many of our best writers learned their craft and how to be part of a literary community.

You will learn

  • how a publisher/editor decides what to publish in a journal
  • the different ways a writer can have their piece find its way to be published
  • the process a piece goes through when submitted and accepted
  • tips and tricks for writers to better their chances of being published
  • how to find the right journal/publication/outcome for each piece of writing.

This workshop develops employment-related skills. This workshop will be Auslan Interpreted.
