This workshop will be an irreverent survey of the process of submitting to literary journals, from the point of view of a veteran editor. Topics discussed will include “where to submit,” “dealing with rejection,” “author bios,” “what do ‘simultaneous submissions’ and ‘previously published’ mean,” and “Well, what IS a literary journal, anyway?” Bring with you a few of your favorite literary journals, and be prepared to write a cover letter.

Previously, he was the editor in chief of the online literary journals Radius and The November 3rd Club, and a member of the editorial board for the Best Indie Lit New England anthology series. His poems and stories have appeared in dozens of periodicals, including The Chiron Review, The Collagist, Barrelhouse, Pearl, Spillway, The Nervous Breakdown and Word Riot, as well as in anthologies such as Poetry Slam: The Competitive Art of Performance Poetry, Spoken Word Revolution Redux, The Last American Valentine: Poems to Seduce and Destroy, Aim For the Head: An Anthology of Zombie Poetry, The Incredible Sestina Anthology and all three Murder Ink: Tales of New England Newsroom Crime anthologies. He lives in Worcester and has far too many opinions about popular music.
