Preparing for the Inaugeral Publishing Institute at MMU

Remember Me...Hi all,

I’ve been sort of out of touch, haven’t I? Sorry about that but I’ve been working on the first ever Publishing Institute at Mount Mary University and it’s almost here. We have 135 participants coming to Mount Mary to meet and greet and talk all things publishing. This is a great opportunity for writing program graduates, members of Red Oak and Red Bird and other local writing centers to learn how to take the next step in writing. There are panels on writing queries and on packaging that stellar submission. We’re also hosting Harvard University’s Direct of Creative Writing, Bret Anthony Johnston who will be talking about his new novel, Remember Me Like This.

I have big hopes for this institute — like, I think it would be really cool if a few of my past students landed an agent and then a publishing deal and then we’ll have you come back to a future publishing institute and be the keynote……

So stay tuned!
