LSW Panel: “Writing for Money”
March 3 (Sat) 2-3:30 pm – FREE
Green Room, Duluth Public Library downtown

Can you really make money with your writing? Join us in the Green Room at the downtown public library to learn from a panel of accomplished writers who earn their living by putting pen to page. Marie Zhuikov, Maddie Cohen, Brooks Johnson, and Gia Bellamy will discuss how they earn money from a variety of writing roles, from working a full-time job to managing projects as a freelancer. This panel will be helpful to anyone curious about the writing business – including how to submit work for publication, working with clients, and earning your entire living from writing.

“Writing for Money” is the second in a series of three free panels on topics important for the writing life. These panels are offered free of charge to LSW members and the general public. (Watch for dates and times about our third panel, “Get That Grant!” in future issues of NorthWords.)

LSW launches a free series of panels for writers

First Panel: Nov 4 (Sat) 10-noon
Where: Estuarium, 3 Marina Drive, Barker’s Island, Superior
Topic: Literary Journals – How to Find the Right Home for Your Work

For the 2017-2018 season, LSW will present a series of three free panels on topics important for the writing life: Publishing in Literary Journals, Writing for Money and Getting that Grant! A panel of LSW members will share their experience and their work. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and network with other writers. These panels will be offered free of charge to LSW members and the general public. (Watch for dates and times about Writing for Money and Getting That Grant! in future issues of NorthWords.)

The Nov 4 panel—“Literary Journals – How to Find the Right Home for Your Work” will focus on literary journals—periodicals devoted to publishing literature such as short stories, personal essays and poetry. Journals are a great way to begin getting your literary work to a larger audience. Literary journals also give writers the chance to work with an editor and take their writing to the next level. But how do you find the right journal for your work? How do you submit? How do you handle rejection – and acceptance? Four writers of various genres – fiction, nonfiction, and poetry – will share their experience and read from their work.
