Happy Summer! Wherever you are, we hope you're staying safe, healthy,
creative and cool during these long hot days! MoonLit will continue to be on hiatus
through the fall season, to catch our breath and prepare for upcoming offerings.
But before we go into full hibernation, we have some fun upcoming offerings to help keep you lit!

How Do I Know When It's Done? Revising, Submitting, and Necessary Patience
with Christopher Gonzalez
August 2 at 2:00pm
In this workshop, presented in partnership with #OutWrite2020, we'll discuss what questions
to ask ourselves while revising, when to share a piece with our writing groups or other readers,
and how much time is too much or too little to spend with it before sending it to en editor.
We'll talk about what's behind the Submittable curtain and share tips and tricks
on how to find the right journal for our writing.
