In addition, possible publishing leads and resources will be presented.

Those interested in participating in this class will be asked to submit 7-10 pages of prose or 3-5 pages of poetry for consideration to the instructor, Elizabeth Potter (potterem@ hotmail.com). The cost of the class includes suggestions for revision and line editing of the submitted manuscript by the instructor, a group critique session, and suggestions for possible publication.
