Then he’ll provide personal insights on how to strategically advance your career as a writer of literary short fiction – offering tips, tricks, tools and templates that will enhance your profile and amplify your publication-seeking efforts – increasing the likelihood that the right editor at the right publication will see your most well-suited story at the right moment.  There will be ample opportunity for questions and conversation.
