Spend two-hours with Third Verb and editor Matthew Stepanic, learning how to best pair your writing with the magazines that want it, along with tips and tricks to keep your work from being buried at the bottom of the slush pile.  

Description

With slush piles being stacked ever higher, it takes a special kind of piece to hook an editor’s attention.

In this two-hour session, you’ll hear from Matthew Stepanic—editor of Glass Buffalo and submissions editor for Eighteen Bridges—on what excites him about the submissions he considers and publishes. He’ll discuss what happens behind the scenes of a litmag’s review process and explain why some work doesn’t earn a second glance—or sometimes more than a second of his time.

You’ll learn how to best pair your writing with the magazines that want it, along with tips and tricks to keep your work from being buried at the bottom of the slush pile.  

Date: MondayFebruary 12, 2018
