Writing for Magazines (This seminar is full!)

June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Instructor: Bill Glose
$60 Members | $65 Nonmembers
Saturday, 6/15/19 | 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

In this workshop, Bill Glose shares his own roadmap to successful publication to show how to break in at magazines and keep landing assignments after you’ve kicked the door down. You will learn the basics of querying, the three stages of the interview, editorial timelines and relationships, and the art of narrative non-fiction as it applies to both essays and articles.

Bill Glose is the author of four poetry collections. He was named the Daily Press Poet Laureate in 2011 and featured by NPR on The Writer’s Almanac in 2017. His stories, poems, and essays have appeared in numerous publications, including The Missouri Review, The Sun, Rattle, and Narrative Magazine. 

A contributing editor with Virginia Living magazine, he has also written freelance articles, essays, and stories for numerous other publications, including The Writer, Army Times, and GRIT. His literary honors include the F. Scott Fitzgerald Short Story Award, the Heroes’ Voices National Poetry Contest, the Virginia Press Association First Place Award for Sports News Writing, and the Missouri Humanities Council Award for Veteran’s Interviews.

Bill is a former paratrooper and combat platoon leader. As a civilian, he undertook a 1,500-mile walking odyssey through Virginia. The poems in his latest book, Virginia Walkabout, are based on this experience. His website (www.BillGlose.com) includes a page of helpful information for writers.
