Instructor: Lisa Lopez Snyder
You’ve written an essay, a short story, some poems, or maybe a novel. So, what’s next, if you want to publish it? Lisa Lopez Snyder offers a step-by-step process for how to do a targeted search of where to publish your work, plus tips for organizing that process. In this session, you’ll (1) learn about online tools for doing a targeted search; (2) learn how to navigate literary databases to find the right fit for your work; (3) and leave with a draft of a short cover letter/bio to a named editor for one publication. The session will also include a handout that lists ways to find agents (primarily fiction/novel) and non-agented, small independent presses. If you have a laptop computer, please feel free to bring that to conduct your online searches. Please note: This session does not focus on how to self-publish your work.
INSTRUCTOR: Lisa Lopez Snyder’s essays and short stories have been featured in 34th Parallel, Adelaide, Gravel, The Raleigh Review, The Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, and other magazines. Her essay, “In Transit,” won The Chattahoochee Review’s 2011 Lamar York Prize for Nonfiction and she was named the 2015 Carl Sandburg Writer-in-Residence.
