Zachary Martin - The Paths to Publication

  • May 13, 2021
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Remote


Registration is closed

Remote Session (WCH not available, so session will remain remote only)

The paths to publication are profuse and this session aims to inform you of your full range of options. In addition to outlining the process for bringing longer works—novels, short story and poetry collections, nonfiction book proposals—to the attention of agents, editors, and the reading public, we’ll discuss some of the advantages of aiming individual essays, stories, and poems at magazines and contests. There’s no single right answer for how to pursue seeing your work in print or online and this session will take a holistic approach to helping you decide when and where to send your work, how to prepare your materials, and what to expect when submitting. 

Zachary Martin is the former Editor of Gulf Coast: A Journal of Literature and Fine Arts and currently teaches courses in creative writing, editing, and publishing in the Lake Forest College Department of English & Creative Writing. He has previously held editorial positions at Fiction Collective Two, Sugar & Rice, and The Southeast Review. His work has appeared in Fourth Genre, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Washington Square, The Louisville Review, and elsewhere. 

Zachary will accept manuscripts for critique. Please see manuscripts guidelines on our website.

We offer free student memberships at a discounted rate of $5.00 per session. You must send verification of your student status. Please contact Claudia Katz at for details.
