Pitching personal essays is quite different from submitting travel stories, journalism, and many other types of writing. In this workshop, you’ll learn about hundreds of places to submit your work, how to discern which ones might best fit your essay, where to find the best writers’ guidelines, and what you should include (and omit) from an essay query letter. In addition, we’ll cover tips on how to increase your chances of being read and selected. While not required, feel free to bring a query letter draft to discuss in class.
