This inaugural St. Thomas Summer Publishing Institute will have events that run all day, featuring local and national writers, agents, editors, and publishers. They will discuss various topics that will help writers of all levels better understand how to navigate the seemingly murky waters of publishing. Most panels and speakers will focus on how to turn your creative writing into published work, whether it be in electronic, magazine, or even book form.
