Publishing in Literary Journals: Building a Writerly Presence
Publishing in Literary Journals: Building a Writerly Presence

Instructor: Arden Eli Hill Ph.D.
Date: Saturday, April 29
Time: 1 to 3 p.m. CST
Genre: Publishing
Format: In-house
Limit: 15 participants
Non-Member Price: $50


In this workshop, you'll learn how to approach publishing in literary journals (both online and in print) through organizing and selecting work, finding places to submit work, navigating terminology and potential traps, managing submission tracking, and sending out materials so that they shine! We'll also talk about rejections to be proud of (not all rejections are the same). You'll walk away with insights, practical tools like sample cover letters, and templates for keeping track of work that is ready to go, under consideration, and decided upon (and hopefully accepted).

This workshop is geared towards people who have never published, those who have had some experience, and even folks who have had more experience but could benefit from some fine-tuning in terms of process or simply being rejuvenated in the journey!

Despite being from Lafayette, Louisiana, Arden Eli Hill has never wrestled an alligator, only a kangaroo. Arden holds a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a specialization in Women and Gender Studies and an MFA from Hollins University. Arden has published in places such as

Willow Springs, Western Humanities Review, Kaleidoscope, Wordgathering, Breath and Shadow, the Lambda Literary award-winning anthology First Person Queer, its sequel, Second Person Queer, Hip Mama, The Wellesley Review, Strange Horizons, McSweeny’s Internet Tendency, the anthology Trans Bodies Trans Selves, and Tupelo Quarterly. Arden has work currently up on the Nebraskans Against Gun Violence home page and the science fiction journal Abyss and Apex.

His most recent project is a chapbook, Bloodwater Parish, published by Seven Kitchen’s Press. The chapbook focuses on race, gender, sexuality, and adoption in southern Louisiana.

In case you are still thinking about the kangaroo, Arden won.
