Workshop reminder: How to Market & Sell Short Fiction

Library workshop flyerJust a reminder of my upcoming workshop for anyone in the Greater Toronto Area. This will be of interest to any short fiction writers who follow me here. I'll be giving a 2-hour workshop on how to market and sell short fiction at the Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library on Thursday, January 26,2017 from 7-9pm. The workshop will be an introduction to some of the material covered in my book Playing the Short Game: How to Market and Sell Short Fiction.

During the two hours, I will give you critical advice and answer your questions on how to sell your short stories to professional markets and to build a career as a short fiction writer. Topics I'll be teaching in the workshop include:

  • rights and licensing for short fiction;
  • a strategy for selecting your target markets;
  • finding short fiction markets;
  • selecting the right market;
  • submitting short fiction to a market; and,
  • what not to do when submitting.

$25 includes the workshop and a copy of my book. Registration is required by January 24. You can register online at or by calling the library:
