This workshop will provide a 360° view of the publication process, from understanding your own writing to finding places to submit your work. Writers will gain familiarity with the ins and outs of

Students will leave this workshop with the following tools:

- an understanding of the submissions process
- best practices on when/where/how to effectively submit
- resources for publication opportunities
