Finding Opportunities for Writers:
Demystifying the Submission Process - Resources, Tips, and Individual Feedback
Finding and submitting to creative writing opportunities – whether its literary journals, fellowships, residencies, or grants – can often feel like an overwhelming and daunting task. You may find yourself asking, “Where do I look?” “What work should I include?” or “What materials are required?”
In this workshop, we’ll share resources and offer tips and best practices for getting the most out of your application – from where to find opportunities to developing a strong artist statement and project proposal that will help you stand out.
Part 2 of the workshop will be conducted individually and virtually: Camille will connect with each participant following the workshop to share opportunities they can apply to and review one piece of material (bio, artist statement, etc) they would like to include on their application. Come with questions and prepared materials!
