  • prepare a polished submission
  • make a professional impression from submission to attendance
  • create a conference plan
  • get financial support to attend
  • practice conference etiquette: the do's and dont's of both applying and attending

Open to writers of color of all levels who feel prepared to present their work at a professional writers' conference.Students completing this workshop will be prepared to research, select, and submit work to several literary conferences, and will be well-equipped with the conventions and expectations of attending.
