2022 Clarion West Write-a-thon

Vera Brook

June 6, 2022 12:00am - July 30, 2022 12:00am

Vera's Writing Goals

My goal for this Write-a-Thon is to make progress on my current writing projects. That's all. These projects include my neuroscience-inspired thriller and a handful of short stories, since I always juggle multiple manuscripts. Anything counts: words added to the manuscript, notes in a notebook, tweaks to an outline.

In addition, every day, I will feature a different speculative short fiction magazine, with links to their website and to their listing on the Submission Grinder. 

Thank you for your interest & support, and best of luck with your own writing goals!

Vera's Writing Progress

Since my writing progress is so scattered this summer, here is a list of amazing speculative short fiction magazines instead, one for each day of the Write-a-Thon.

Best of luck with your writing & with all your submissions!
