4F: Don't Get Stuck in the Slush: 10 (MORE) Pitfalls to Avoid When Submitting to Literary Magazines FULL
Limited Capacity full

Do you occasionally ascribe action to body parts rather than people, e.g. Her eyes danced across the page? Do you describe actions incrementally ("She began to open the door") when a direct description would be more fitting ("She opened the door")? Are you making simple but easily overlooked lay/lie errors?  

In this session, we'll talk about the nitty-gritty grammatical hurdles as well as lofty theoretical roadblocks that can keep our drafts from serious editorial consideration. With special emphasis on revision practices, this session is designed to help attendees approach their work with fresh ideas for revising their work prior to submitting it to publications.
