How to Avoid the Slush Pile

I aim to find out tomorrow. So, title today should be How to Avoid the Slush Pile? And by Friday, with luck, my blog post will be Here's How to Avoid the Slush Pile!

The Writing Room's class, by that title [the former one] is tomorrow, Thursday, at 6:30.  The prolific, talented, and award-winning Jillian Weise will be teaching. If you're in the area, join us.

Jilllian Weise: How to Avoid the Slush Pile 
What happens to your manuscript when it arrives in the office of a magazine? Who reads it? What are they looking for? What are they appalled by? How do they make decisions about the work they publish? When can you expect to hear a response? This class will focus on the business side of creative writing, and give you a few Dos and Don’ts to help you navigate the publishing world. Instructor has worked on the editorial board of The Paris Review and currently works as an editor for The South Carolina Review.
