Where to Publish Your Wonderful Work
Figure out where your wonderful poems belong in the literary marketplace
Amy Holman, formerly of Poets & Writers will teach poets how to figure out where their wonderful poems belong in the literary marketplace, whether in print or online, with literary journals, as chapbooks or full-length collections.
We have many wonderful workshops on the craft of writing in the Bay Area, but not so many on how to place your work for publication.
Amy Holman will help you organize a personalized publishing notebook that will help in your research, with shortcuts to narrowing down where your poems belong.
Using her practical methodology for evaluating editorial subject and style interests at magazines and presses, she will lead participants through the evaluation of several literary journals and small and independent presses, teach you how to describe your writing, and how to present yourself to editors and publishers.
15-minute one-on-one meetings (optional)
Amy will read three poems and suggest two magazines to send them as a head start to the research she has taught the poet to do. Or she converse with you about where to publish a chapbook or collection after reading a description and two poems.
$120 with one-on-one meeting
$100 for workshop without one-on-one
Registration limited to 12 participants. You do not need to be a member of Marin Poetry Center to attend.
