As I wrote in my last post I Taught a College Class!, I taught a class full of screenwriters how to get internships, freelance and become bloggers. However, another one of their questions was about how I recently got a poem published in [PANK] Magazine. I was published in their online magazine at the beginning of October for my poem, “Elegy Above the Oyster House.” I was very excited, and I think getting published is a great thing to add to a resume or to a grad school application. Especially for writers who want to market themselves as freelancers, it’s a leg up to be a published writer. I don’t think there is EVER a guarantee that you will get your work published, but I can at least tell you how I did it.
