This workshop led by poet Keith M. Gaboury will focus on a step-by-step process of how a poet can submit their poetry to a wide range of literary journals along with presses that accept chapbooks and full-length manuscripts. From such topics as knowing which literary journals to submit to, formatting a cover letter, and following submission guidelines, Keith will break this seemingly daunting process into goals that are readily attainable. All this information will be shared through a Google Doc that will remain active indefinitely. In addition, the Google Doc will have links to online databases of literary journals / presses and websites that feature active submission calls. At the end of the workshop, a poet will have a thorough understanding of how they can send their poetry out into the literary world.
Keith Mark Gaboury earned a M.F.A. in creative writing from Emerson College. His poems have appeared in such literary publications as Poetry Quarterly and New Millennium Writings along with chapbooks from Duck Lake Books and The Pedestrian Press. He has a forthcoming chapbook from Finishing Line Press. Keith lives in Oakland, California. Learn more at www.keithmgaboury.com.
