Creative writing isn’t an establish-yourself-overnight deal. It's a journey that requires time, hard work, commitment, and access to the right resources.

Half the battle is developing your voice and fine-tuning your work. The other half is about building a presence to draw an audience that stays and grows with you during your growth as a writer.

After workshops, peer reviews and/or self-edits, it’s time to send that blog/review/story/essay/article out into the world! From Page To Publication: Submitting Your Work to Publications & Journals is an opportunity to get the scoop on investing in yourself and your craft. Find out where to send your work, how to approach publishers, and when/how to time your submissions while preparing to send final drafts to publications and journals.

Open to beginner and intermediate writers.

All class meetings will be held via Zoom. The link to join your Zoom classroom will be provided on the morning of your class. Please check spam folders if you do not receive an email confirmation upon registration. For more information on how to download or use Zoom, please click here.
