Title: Turning Rejections Into Acceptances: Breaking Into Literary Journals to Build a Publishing History.
Speaker: Sherry Audette Morrow
Time+place: April 17 2013 at 6:30 p.m. in room 205 at Maryland Hall.
Sherry Audette Morrow, founding editor of Scribble magazine, will share the editor’s perspective on the submission process and answers your questions about how an editor decides between sending the rejection or the coveted acceptance letter: What can I do to improve my chances of being published in a small journal? What do editors love, and what do they hate? How can I turn a rejection into an acceptance — do they really mean it when they say “try again”?
The meeting is open to the public and free to MWA members and first-time guests. The Annapolis MWA chapter typically meets the third Wednesday of every month in room 205 at Maryland Hall. For more information visit: annapolismwa.wordpress.com and http://www.marylandwriters.org.
