Guest Speaker - Dannye Romine Powell - Sending Your Voice into the World: Contests, Journal Submissions, and Other Paths to Publication
Dannye Romine Powell is author of four poetry collections, two of which have won the Brockman-Campbell Award for the best book of poetry published by a North Carolinian in the prior year. She's won fellowships in poetry from the NEA and the North Carolina Arts Council and has won a residency to the writer's colony Yaddo, where she slept one icy winter in the bedroom once occupied by Sylvia Plath. She has worked for many years at the Charlotte Observer, where she writes about books and authors.
Sending Your Voice into the World: Contests, Journal Submissions, and Other Paths to Publication
If the writerly part of you prefers a garret in Paris, the submitter part of you needs a sleek desk, a ledger and a healthy ego. Dannye will talk about where to submit, how often to submit and why to submit your poems, short stories and essays. She'll cover that old slippery slope of simultaneous submissions, as well.
