Have you ever wanted to publish a story or an article? In this class, we will learn the basics of preparing your work for publication and finding the right market for your writing. Young writers will learn how to utilize on-line search engines, writers’ markets and the good old library shelves to research publications and find the right fit. We will also cover how to follow “writer’s guidelines,” approach an editor, and follow up on your submissions. Armed with these tools, you will be well on your way to seeing your name in print!



No prerequisite – this class is for any student who loves to write and wants to know how to get a story published.
