While Allen Ginsberg and the Beats touted the philosophy of “First Thought, Best Thought,” and the merits of spontaneous writing, in this workshop, we’ll explore the role that revision plays in landing the perfect publication deal. We’ll take a look at what it takes to pitch to literary journals, and get that poem, short story, memoir, essay, or play published. We’ll discuss why writers should network, and when writers should look for literary agents, and we will demystify elements of the publishing and creative writing industry at large. In addition, we’ll have some fun with our writing and revisions as well! So if you’re currently working on a short story, novel, screenplay, theatre play, lyrical essay, memoir, or poem which you’d like to revise and published, come stop by the Munich Readery on Sunday July 9 for our next creative writing workshop led by Rita Banerjee. To register, send an email to John by July 2, 2017 at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Workshop Fee: €35.
