For Spring 2019, Jersey City Writers has partnered with the Department of Cultural Affairs at Hudson County Community College to lead a prose and poetry writing residency. JCW will offer a writing bootcamp that is open to HCCC students and staff, as well as local writers.

Publishing Panel: All About Submissions
You've written (and rewritten) your short story, poem, novel or chapbook. Now you're ready to send it out into the world. What do you do? Where do you send it? How?

In this nuts and bolts workshop we'll go over the how's and where's of submitting and querying, what you must do and what you must not do, where the markets are and how to find them.

Finally, we'll discuss the one thing no one ever seems to want to talk about: rejection. It's inescapable, it sucks, but there are ways to cope with it.

The discussion will be led by Kevin Singer, whose short fiction has been published in the literary magazines Rind, Trysts of Fate and Danse Macabre, and the anthologies Young Adventurers, Playthings of the Gods, Realities Perceived, and Worlds Unimagined.

Joining Kevin will be Jessica Kashiwabara from Poets & Writers Magazine, who will dive deep into the magazine's tools for writers.

In addition, Sarah T. Jewell, a Pushcart-prize nominated poet whose chapbook How to Break Your Own Heart was recently published by Dancing Girl Press, will share her insights.

Advanced sign up is strongly encouraged. Programs will be held in the Dineen Hull Gallery Atrium, 71 Sip Ave., 6th Fl., unless otherwise noted. Photo I.D. must be shown when entering the HCCC campus.
