Remote Session  (OCWW is remote only through Dec. 2020)

You've perfected your short story, novel or short story collection--now what? You could send your manuscript directly to an editor, find an agent first, or even go the contest route. What are the pros and cons of these paths? This session led by award-winning author Amina Gautier (The Loss of All Lost Things; Now We Will Be Happy) will explore guidelines, procedures, and pitfalls to avoid on your journey to publication.

Bio: Amina Gautier is the author of three award-winning short story collections: At-Risk, Now We Will Be Happy, and The Loss of All Lost Things. At-Risk was awarded the Flannery O’Connor Award; Now We Will Be Happy was awarded the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Fiction; The Loss of All Lost Things was awarded the Elixir Press Award in Fiction. More than one hundred of her stories have been published, appearing in Agni, Blackbird, Boston Review, Callaloo, Glimmer Train, Hypertext, Kenyon Review, Latino Book Review, Mississippi Review, New Flash Fiction Review, Prairie Schooner, Quarterly West, and Southern Review among other places. For her body of work she has received the Blackwell Prize, the Chicago Public Library Foundation’s 21st Century Award, and the PEN/MALAMUD Award for Excellence in the Short Story.
