Dust off your manuscripts, bring your query letters, and get ready to send your work out into the world.
For the first hour, published author, Sarina Dorie, is going to give an overview of how to submit a manuscript, touching on cover letters, publishing jargon, contracts, and where to find magazines, contests, and anthologies to submit to. During the second hour, we get to work! Write those query and cover letters (with the support of Sarina and the rest of our community of writers) so that you can create your system to make submitting less daunting!
This annual event is one of four FREE member events! Become a Wordcrafter today to get in on these perks!
(We know times are tough. Please don’t let a lack of funds hinder you from showing up! Use coupon SPARKLING20 if the cost is prohibitive.)
About the Instructor
As a child, Sarina Dorie dreamed of being an astronaut/archeologist/fashion designer/illustrator/writer. Later in life, after realizing this might be an unrealistic goal, Sarina went to the Pacific NW College of Art where she earned a degree in illustration, and to Portland State University for a master’s in education to pursue the equally cut-throat career of teaching art in the public school system. After years of dedication to art and writing, most of Sarina’s dreams have come true; in addition to teaching, she is a writer/artist/ fashion designer/ belly dancer. Sarina is the author of over 160 published short stories, and novels too numerous to count, including the Womby’s School for Wayward Witches series, and the award-winning novel, Silent Moon.
Now, if only Jack Sparrow asks her to marry him, all her dreams will come true. Learn more about Sarina and her work here.
