Online Feedback Clinic: Pitching to Literary Journals

Writers Victoria

Event Date: 18 July 2023 12:00 PM
Author / Presenters: [email protected]

In this Online Feedback Clinic, students will develop their craft at pitching essays, commentary and criticism to Literary Journals and similar publications. Each month, writers will develop a pitch and short sample, and will receive feedback and encouragement from Adalya on how to make their pitches more clear, compelling, targeted and clean.

Pitches of up to 800 words plus 300 words of sample material due 18 July, 22 August, 19 September, 24 October, 21 November.

Our Online Feedback Clinics are asynchronous, with no face-to-face meetings, allowing you to engage with the content at the times of day and week that suit your schedule. They are hosted on our private Wordpress server. There will be an optional Zoom introduction to the clinic website for those less confident with technology, which will be recorded for those who cannot attend live. For more information on our online feedback clinics, please read our FAQs
