Description



Playing the Short Game #2 - You Sold a Story! Contracts, Editing, & Reality
Based on the writer’s guide, Playing the Short Game: How to Market & Sell Short
Fiction, this workshop focuses on the next phase in a short story writer's career—
when you start to sell your stories. This workshop takes a writer from when they
learn an editor wants to buy their story to after it's published, and the reviews
start coming. Topics include:
• Understanding how editors and slush piles work
• Why editors choose or reject stories
• What to look (and look out) for in short fiction contracts, and how to ask for
changes
• How to work with an editor during the editing process for your story
• How to handle rejections and reviews
• How much promotion is reasonable when you sell a story
• Cool things that might happen: Awards, “best of” anthologies…and even movies
