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!


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/ and dancer. Sarina is the author of over 160 published short stories, and novels too numerous to count. Now, if only Jack Sparrow asks her to marry him, all her dreams will come true.
