Crash Course!


Livingston Library Community, 

Are you a writer who is looking for some guidance when it comes to pursuing publication? On Tuesday, October 17th, at 7pm, the Livingston Public Library invites you to join us in the Library’s Technology Room for a Literary Publication Crash Course taught by The Writers Circle. 

During this workshop, participants will learn the basics of submitting short works for publication, including writing a cover letter, drafting a biography, finding target publications, monitoring submissions, and dealing with both rejection and acceptance.
