March 10, 2018 1:30 Michele Berger will present "Charting Your Path to Publication," strategies to beat the odds of rejection. You'll learn how to select markets for your work, track submissions, and find great resources. She says, "There is no one path to publication, but we can follow and replicate the strategies of accomplished writers. You will leave with an action plan with concrete steps toward publication (or, if already published with a plan about how to become more widely so)." Michele is a women's studies professor at UNC-Chapel Hill and a prolific writer of science fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. She's published dozens of articles and stories in numerous journals, and her novella, “Reenu-You” was recently published by Book Smugglers Publishing.
Michele is also a creativity coach; visit her at The Practice of Creativity.
