A quick reminder for our up-coming learning Tuesday (March 6th). Paul will be speaking about/and taking us through some of the necessary steps to follow when submitting your work – poem, short story etc. – to some of the many magazines and contests.

As part of his presentation, he will submit a piece he has prepared in real time.

Look forward to seeing you all there.
