For the past two years, Jersey City Writers (JCW) has provided local writers with support through our workshops, writing exercises and writing marathons. We have pushed our members to write consistently, try new genres and set goals.
Now we are pushing again our writers with “Submit it or Quit it Fall 2013” challenge.
JCW is challenging active members to submit a short story, poem, personal essay, screenplay, etc. for local, national or website publication by September 28th.
We have vetted various outlets for submission guidelines and have compiled a list from which our writers to choose. To sweeten the deal, JCW has planned a Celebration Marathon on the “Submit it or Quit it” deadline for active members who have submitted their work.
The Celebration Marathon is September, 28, at Indiegrove. So let’s get started:
Commit to it!
