How My First Story Got Accepted By a Literary Journal

A few weeks ago I started the free Tuesday workshop class taught by Tessa Smith McGovern. Tessa is an incredible instructor, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and generous with her time and advice…Because I only started to submit my work recently, I was unsure how the submission process really worked. Tessa patiently walked me through Duotrope, showing me how to narrow down the list of literary journals best suited to my story and I submitted it to a few of them. A few weeks later one of the journals accepted the story for their next issue! It was very exciting to receive my first acceptance letter for publication and I have to thank Tessa for showing me how to make that happen. This is a wonderful class, chock full of all kinds of smart advice for writers on process as well as wonderful in-class exercises to help make the writing flow. ~ Susan Weinstein

N.B. Workshops are hosted by The Westport Library but FREE TO ALL WRITERS, NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.

If you have questions, please text or call Tessa at 203 803 3253.

I look forward to meeting you!
