WNY Young Writers' Studio
December 2012 Newsletter
Preparing to Publish
Once upon a time, publication was typically viewed as the end of the writing process. Once our words were released to the world, that piece of writing was considered complete, and new projects would begin. Writers are creating a very different world now. Often, publishing our writing brings us back to the beginning of the process once again. Words are often shared in social spaces online, where readers from all over the world can connect with us and provide feedback on our thinking and our work. Our ideas are often refined, enriched, or challenged in ways that bring us back to our beginnings. This leaves us thinking and writing all over again.
Publication is power and all writers have the ability to publish now.
During our December sessions, writers of all ages will consider the drafts they have produced, the promise that each one holds, and the possibilities that publication can offer them. We will be exploring various markets and venues for each writer's work and learning more about what it means to publish in 2012.
I can't wait to see where this takes us!
