Cover letter or no cover letter? How many poems to submit at one time? This workshop will cover
how to submit poems to literary magazines and to chapbook and book contests, as well as literary
presses. I’ll share what I’ve learned from 25 years of sending out my work and 6 years of working on
literary magazines. You’ll learn how to stay organized and motivated, and what mistakes to avoid. This
session will include a Q &A.
