  • Location: Big Smoke Writing factory, 13 Harcourt Street, Dublin D02 RK31
  • Date: 25th March
  • Duration: 6.15pm-8.45pm

Cost: 30.00

In this half-day (evening, this time!) workshop we’ll look at everything you ever wanted to know about publishing but were afraid to ask:

  • submitting to literary journals, magazines and competitions
  • submitting to publishers and agents
  • self-publishing (why and when?)
  • the money (how much? how little?)
  • what do editors really mean when they say… ?
  • how do you find an agent?
  • what’s the deal with synopses & why are they so painful to write?
  • cover letters – what to include (and why)
  • word count worries
  • how to stay sane when submitting (and getting rejections)
  • how to take feedback (without crying)
  • keep developing your skills (beyond ‘beginners’)
  • what makes a useful critique partner/group?

And anything else that comes up. Writers of any level are welcome.

Facilitator: Claire Hennessy
