Submitting to Literary Journals
with Gail Folkins
Submitting creative work to literary journals is a great way to join a larger conversation of writers and readers. We will cover methods for submitting work both for those who are starting out and for those hoping to renew their process. Topics will include refining bios, how to work with editors, and what I call the unwritten aesthetic.
Gail often writes about her deep roots in the American West. She is the author of the nature memoir Light in the Trees (Texas Tech University Press, 2016) and Texas Dance Halls: A Two-Step Circuit (Texas Tech University Press, 2006). Her recent work has appeared or is forthcoming in About Place Journal and Under the Sun. Folkins teaches creative writing at Hugo House and is an editor at Wandering Aengus Press.

New to WWP
Welcome, Pacific Northwest Writers!
We meet every last Wednesday from September to June in scenic Bellingham, WA. Supper starts at 5:30, and the speaker starts at 7:00.
Dues are 25 dollars a year or 40 for two years. We use the dues to pay for our speakers to come from around the region, and for an occasional table at local writer events. Our dues year runs from September to June, like our meetings, but will roll over if you pay late in the cycle. If you want to try us out first, feel free. Speakers in the past have included authors Cami Ostman and Robert Dugoni, and agent Donald Maass, covering topics such as social media, self-publishing, memoirs, mixed media, poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. It is our goal to offer something for everyone, no matter your place in the writing journey-- just starting or long-published. Old school or new. If you have an idea for a speaker or topic, let us know, but if it has been covered recently it might not be picked up.
