Program Description

Event Details

Learn the basics of submitting short works for publication to literary magazines, including writing a cover letter, drafting a bio, finding target publications, monitoring submissions, and dealing with rejection or–yay!–acceptance.

During the workshop, participants will engage in interactive exercises designed to meet the goals of the program in a positive, supportive atmosphere. Although not all participants are guaranteed a chance to share their work during the program, everyone will participate, engage, and learn.

This program will be led by Judith Lindbergh, founder and director of The Writers Circle. Judith's new novel, Akmaral, is forthcoming from Regal House Publishing in spring 2024. Her debut novel, The Thrall’s Tale, was a Booksense (IndieBound) Pick, a Borders Original Voices Selection, and praised by Pulitzer Prize winners Geraldine Brooks and Robert Olen Butler. Her work has appeared in numerous publications including in Zibby Magazine, Next Avenue, Writer’s Digest, Edible Jersey, Archaeology Magazine, Other Voices, and UP HERE: The North at the Center of the World, published by University of Washington Press.

Space is limited for this program; registration is required. Registration will open at 10 AM on Monday, September 18, 2023.

This event is funded by the Friends of the Livingston Public Library. It is free and open to everyone.
