Talking River Review staff will hold workshop for aspiring authors

LEWISTON, Idaho – The staff of the Lewis-Clark State College literary journal Talking River Review (TRR) will hold a workshop, both in person and virtually on Tuesday, March 16 at 6 p.m., to help authors prepare their pieces for publication.

The event is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. There will be limited seating inside the LC State Library’s Telecommunications Classroom and the college’s COVID-19 protocols will be followed, including the requirement of wearing face coverings at all times inside the building and classroom as well as social distancing.

To pre-register for the event, email [email protected] and indicate if you plan on attending in person or virtually. In-person attendance will be based on the order of pre-registrations received and won’t be available once the limited capacity is reached.

The workshop will cover final revision tips to ensure a written piece is ready to send out for review/publication, do’s and don’ts of cover letters, and where to submit written works, which will cover journals that accept undergraduate work or unsolicited work.

Participants are encouraged to have pen and paper, and also creative writing drafts they are currently working on so that they can make revisions during the workshop.

Jennifer Anderson, the faculty advisor for the TRR and assistant professor of publishing arts and creative writing at LC State, will lead the event and will be assisted by student interns with the TRR.

For more than 25 years, the student-run literary journal TRR has published the creative works of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction writers. It has published 49 issues and is published biannually by the Associated Students of LC State. For more information on the journal, visit the TRR website.
