An Intro to Publishing in Lit Journals

Ready to start publishing in literary journals? Not sure why you haven’t had success with your submissions lately? Or maybe you just want a refresher on publishing in online and print literary magazines?

Join WFNS Programming and Membership Officer Annick MacAskill for a two-hour workshop and discussion on the fundamentals of publishing in literary journals. Intended for writers at all stages of their careers, this workshop will address the different kinds of literary journals, cover letters, contests, tracking submissions, and dealing with rejection. The session will also include some tips for writers looking to better their chances with submissions.


Annick MacAskill’s debut poetry collection is No Meeting Without Body (Gaspereau Press, 2018). Her poetry, fiction, and reviews have appeared in journals across Canada and abroad, with recent publications in Grain Magazine, Room Magazine, Canadian Notes & Queries, Literary Review of Canada, The Antigonish Review, The Puritan, Prism International, and Versal. She has been selected as a finalist for the CBC Canada Writes Poetry Prize, the Ralph Gustafson Prize, the Edna Staebler Personal Essay Contest, the Short Grain Contest, a Pushcart Prize, and other literary awards.
