What to Do With Your English Degree: Lit Journals 101

Have you ever thought about publishing your creative writing, or helping to publish others’ work? Come to the second panel in our new series for English and Creative Writing BA and BFA students, centered on helping you develop the skills and knowledge you need to succeed beyond Mason’s walls.

Part Two of the series, “Literary Journals 101,” will bring together writers and editors across genres of creative writing: fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. They will discuss their own publishing journeys, what makes a submission a ‘yes,’ and what they’ve learned about craft, equity, and community from working with literary journals. Bring your questions – we’ll open up to an audience Q&A after the panel!

Date: Thursday, April 14

Time: 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Location: Zoom (RSVP at the top of this page to receive log-in information on the day of the event)

Panelists include:

  • Amanda Ganus, nonfiction writer and editor-in-chief of So to Speak
  • Tim Johnson, fiction writer and EIC of Phoebe Journal
  • William Fargason, poetry editor at Split Lip
  • Cristi Donoso, a writer, editor, translator, and 2021-2022 Writer in Residence at the PEN/Faulkner Foundation
