Have you thought about submitting short stories to literary magazines? If not, why not? Tonight at our free talk with the Golden Ears Writers in Maple Ridge we’ll discuss
- Why short stories are a great way to launch your writing career
- How stories in literary magazines can improve your own book sales
- Where and how to submit
- What catches an editor’s eye
- How to learn from rejections (we all get them!)
- Acceptance! Now what? Working with an editor
- Capitalizing and growing your brand from your short story publications
There will be plenty of time for questions and answers, and we’ll talk specifically about the types of stories and writing we look for in the slush pile at Pulp Literature.
Join us for a convivial evening with fellow writers:
Tuesday 18 November, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Arts Centre Theatre
11944 Haney Place, Maple Ridge
(at 224th, north of Lougheed)
admission free, all welcome!
It takes a lot of energy to write, often because we must tear ourselves away from our normal busy schedules and the lengthy ‘to do’ lists we create. We struggle to say no to people and projects in order to scrape time together for a bit of story drafting. And then, just when we’re getting started, the buzzer goes off and we must return to the busy world, story abandoned.
But not on a writing retreat! With like-minded people as partners, all distractions are set aside as we focus on hearing the muse. If this sounds tempting to you, consider joining all three Pulp editors for three days in the New Year at the sumptuous Lodge at the Old Dorm on Bowen Island.
Year of the Muse Writing Retreat
9 – 11 January 2015
Lodge at the Old Dorm, Snug Cove, Bowen Island BC
It’s the kind of place you’d expect to find Bilbo Baggins writing his memoir, enjoying good food and ale. We will take walks, write, eat, and write, write, write. See you there!
