Baltimore has New Publication Workshop!

Baltimore has New Publication Workshop!

I’m teaching a one day course at Litmore this summer–we’ll talk about submitting to litmags, and may include some freebies! Please, tell your friends! Hope to see you there!


In this session, we’ll talk about what literary magazines are, and why it’s important for emerging and established writers to publish through them. We’ll have a litmag “translation” exercise, tips on how to get the most out of a lit mag, and the secrets to writing a great cover letter to get an editor’s attention. The skills you learn in this session can easily apply to other publication realms, including writing to agents and editors of small book presses. 

Please register by following the ticket link below or contacting LitMore 443-595-7548, Registration closes Wednesday, 16 July.

Meg Eden’s work has been published in various magazines, including B O D Y, Drunken Boat, Mudfish, and Rock & Sling. Her work received second place in the 2014 Ian MacMillan Fiction contest.
