Literary Arts Panel: How to Publish Your Creative Work

Event Detail
Date: Thursday, February 28th
Time: 4:30 pm

How do you publish your poem? Your story? Your novel? How do you send creative work to magazines and contests? What do editors care about? Do you need an agent? Is it possible to survive on creative writing? How? The Center for the Literary Arts is hosting a panel on literary publishing with experts who have published their work--come hear their advice at the Van Etten-Lacey House (408 Third St. SW.) The panel will include: Don Waters' story collection, "Desert Gothic," won the Iowa Short Fiction Award. Stories from the collection have been anthologized in the Pushcart Prize, Best of the West, and New Stories from the Southwest. Waters has received the Silver Pen Award from the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Colleges Association New Writers Award in Fiction. He has also been awarded fellowships from the Christopher Isherwood Foundation, the Lannan Foundation, and the Iowa Writers' Workshop. His short stories have been widely published and his journalism has appeared in The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and Outside, among others. His novel, "Sunland," will be published next fall. Before publishing "Ceremony" in February 2013, Mary Austin Speaker published the chapbooks "The Bridge" (Push Press, 2011) and "20 Love Poems for 10 Months" (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2012). She is also the author of numerous critical works, essays, and a play, "I Am You This Morning You Are Me Tonight," written with her husband, poet Chris Martin. She has been a poetry editor for the Indiana Review, an art director for HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster, and founded the Triptych reading series in New York City. She works as a book designer in Iowa City, Iowa. Martin is the author of "Becoming Weather" (Coffee House, 2011) and "American Music" (Copper Canyon, 2007, winner of the Hayden Carruth Award for Emerging Poets), in addition to several chapbooks, including: "How to Write a Mistake-ist Poem" (Brave Men, 2011) and "Enough" (Ugly Duckling, 2012). In 2010 he was named one of the Poetry Society of America's New American Poets. After 11 years of editing online journal Puppy Flowers, he is now an editor at Futurepoem Books.
