Thayer Memorial Library, Dexter Thayer Room

Do you find the task of submitting to literary magazines intimidating or overwhelming? In this workshop we’ll develop basic tools for identifying journals that are right for your genre and writing style, as well as best practices for contacting editors and tracking your submissions.

Diane Vanaskie Mulligan began writing her first novel, Watch Me Disappear, during an after-school writing club she moderates for high school students. The book was published in, 2012 and was a finalist in the Kindle Book Review’s, Best Indie Book Awards, in the Young Adult category the next year. Her second novel, The Latecomers Fan Club, was released in 2013 and was named a 2014 IndieReader Discovery Award winner. In 2015, Diane published The Sane Person’s Guide to Self-Publishing, a brief guide book to self-publishing, in order to help other aspiring writers get their work out into the world.  Diane holds a BA in American Studies from Mount Holyoke College and a Master’s Degree in teaching from Simmons college.  When she isn’t teaching or writing, she is the managing editor at The Worcester Review and the director of The Betty Curtis Worcester County Young Writers’ Conference. You can find her occasionally strumming her guitar and singing at various bars in central Massachusetts, where she lives with her husband.
