American Library in Paris Workshop

The Long Game of Short Work

Getting Your Writing Published (ages 12-18)

On February 15, from 19h00 to 
21h00, I’ll be teaching a teen-oriented workshop in the American Library in Paris!

Overnight success is a myth. The road to a published novel or memoir often begins with the publication of short prose. Not only to capture an agent’s attention and assemble a body of work, but also to practice and benefit from feedback. We’ll talk about literary magazines and the submission process, dealing with rejection, promoting your work online, and finding your place in the writers’ community.

Advance registration is required for Teen Nights. Participation is free for Library members and €10 for non-members. Sign up with the library.
