This seminar will focus on the preparation process required for submitting to
magazines and literary journals. We will discuss proper manuscript formatting
techniques and ways to compose a cover letter. We will explore various
publications and how students can determine which magazines are appropriate
for their work, and we will workshop first pages of student manuscripts,
discussing elements that are likely to engage an editor or dismay them from
continuing to read. Students will receive the tools to draft their own cover
letters, to choose the best publications for their own submissions, to interpret
rejection letters, and to polish their first pages.
