Join us for a weekend intensive on all things publishing! This two-day event will feature classes on how to market your book, strategies for submitting to literary magazines; publishing with small presses, big presses, and independent publishing; what to know before you publish; a query letter clinic with literary agent Eric Smith; and a roundtable with agent Sara Megibow. Panel discussions include Publishing for Marginalized Voices and Publishing Young Adult / Middle Grade (MG). Every participant is welcome to compete for 20-minute meetings with agents Eric Smith of P.S. Literary, Sonali Chanchani of Folio Literary Management, and Chelsea Hensley of kt literary. All genres of prose welcome.

Lighthouse Writers Workshop makes me hopeful about the future of the arts in America.
