Friendship – Call for Submission Workshop

FRIENDSHIP – A Call for Submission Workshop
From Workshop to Anthology Publishing Opportunity
Saturday, June 20th, 2009

How many times have you seen a call for submission and thought “I should enter that!”? But the due date comes and goes, and you’ve let another opportunity slide.

Workshop presenters Sue Reynolds and James Dewar have been hired by Hidden Brook Press to edit an anthology of prose and poetry focused on the theme of friendship.

Reynolds and Dewar have two fundamental beliefs about creating writing:
• The most powerful tool a writer has is a deadline.
• A writer’s most powerful support is community

Drawing on these beliefs, they have created this workshop to encourage writers to commit to a time to produce work for this anthology. The day will consist of an exploration of the theme of friendship in all its facets and complexities – support, understanding, betrayal, jealousy, love and many more. Writing on the spot exercises will explore the themes through the forms of memoir, fiction and poetry. The last part of the day will cover submission guidelines for this particular anthology.

This workshop will not only provide writers with the opportunity to produce work for this collection, but will also give writers skills to help create and prepare a submission for any of the themed calls that are regularly presented by literary journals and magazines.

Please note: Participation in this workshop does not guarantee inclusion in the collection, however, it does guarantee a close reading of your submission and editorial feedback.

Please note:
Participation in the workshop is not a requirement for consideration for publication in the anthology.

In the summer of 2013 I was invited to do a TEDtalk on “Shining the light on our Changing Communities”. I talked about the therapeutic writing program I do with incarcerated women. You can view the talk here.
