July Classes with Robert King and Karen Holmes

Saturday, June 20, 1- 4 p.m. Karen Holmes will teach a poetry editing class at Writers Circle. We have a full class and look forward to being with other poets and writers to learn and share with each other.


On Saturday, July 27, Robert S. King will teach a workshop at the Moss Memorial Library in Hayesville, NC on electronic submissions. Every time I get with local writers I hear someone say they don't feel confident using the online methods to submit their work.

Robert King is proficient in this type of thing and can teach us how to best get our work out to the world to enjoy without the old familiar hard copy and SASE.
Maybe this class will get me going and submitting more of my work.

What about you? Are you being held back by the new technology and online submissions? Did you know that Boomers are the group who use most of the smart phones, I-Pads and other gadgets, not the young ones. We can learn what we need to learn, so sign up for Robert's class and send out your stories, essays and poetry.

Contact me, Glenda Beall, 828-389-4441 or nightwriter0302@yahoo.com, contact Robert at rskingpoet@gmail.com  or simply send a check made to Writers Circle and mail to 581 Chatuge Lane, Hayesville, NC.
Do it now because space is limited in the computer lab at the library.

Electronic Submissions Class for Writers by Robert S. King


Times they are a'changing said the singer in the sixties, but he didn't know nuthin' about changes.
Changes in the publishing world are occurring so fast we can hardly keep up with them. One of those changes for writers and poets is the way we submit our work to magazines and journals. 

Gone are the days when we made copies, addressed envelopes to send in our work and envelopes to return our work. Now, we submit online without printing a page. But different publications use different methods of submission. We often refrain from submitting if we have to deal with learning a new process. 

That is why I am glad we have Robert S. King, a publisher, poet and editor with the expertise to teach us this new technology. Robert stays abreast of what is new, and he is teaching a class at Moss Memorial Library in Hayesville, NC. See the details below.

Robert S. King  Moss Memorial Library, Hayesville, NC - Saturday, April 20  -  10 -1:00 p.m.  $30.00
Mail check to Writers Circle, 581 Chatuge Lane, Hayesville, NC 28904 -

Most publishers today allow electronic submissions, either by dedicated software online or by email. Learn how to use the most popular online systems and also how to compose email
submissions with or without file attachments. In addition, you will discover how to use the most popular market lists so that you can identify the magazines or publishers best suited for your writing.
