Polishing and Publishing Your Short Prose

Weekend July 27 to July 28 2019

Maybe you have a lot of work that’s almost, but not quite, done. Maybe you think you’re done but you don’t know what’s next. This workshop will help you get that story or essay or experimental prose piece ready to send out. You will bring in writing that’s close (but not yet!) done, and by the end of our weekend, you’ll have it polished and prepped for submission. We’ll spend some time looking at a range of options for publication geared to your writing style and genre.


In this workshop we will generate new writing through guided exercises and prompts; provide feedback on writing you bring from home; provide feedback on writing you produce in our weekend.
