Workshop helps prospective magazine writers get published
CARSON CITY, Nevada – The chasm between being a writer and being a published writer can seem daunting, but award-winning Nevada writer Brittany Bronson has navigated it well.
Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, The Guardian, The Times of London, and many other print and Web-based publications.
Bronson, a 2019 Artist Fellowship Grant recipient from the Nevada Arts Council, is offering a free workshop to help fellow writers get their works published.
Titled, “How to Get Published in a Magazine,” the workshop will take place on Sunday, Feb. 10 at noon at Imagine Studio, 3037 E. Warm Springs Rd., #200, Las Vegas. Those planning to attend should RSVP at: https://www.facebook.com/events/2318307445081342/.
The workshop is being conducted in coordination with the Nevada Arts Council and the Las Vegas Writers Lounge, a pop-up studio where writers of all levels can come together to enhance their craft.
Leading the workshop is Bronson and C. Moon Reed, a staff writer for the Las Vegas Weekly. They will discuss how to build a following and get noticed by literary agents and publishers.
As the industry has evolved from print-only to a print/web-based model, there are more opportunities than ever for writers of all skill levels to share their work with the world.
Bronson has received awards and recognitions from TalkPoverty.Org, Vegas Seven Magazine, and The Pinch Literary Awards. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2014. She tweets at @Brittanybronso.
As a staff writer at Las Vegas Weekly, Reed has explored the kitschy yet endearing pioneer spirit of the Silver State. Her work varies from trolling red carpets for celebrity gossip to writing in-depth feature stories and slightly self-indulgent personal essays.

The Artist Fellowship Program was created in 1988 by the Nevada Arts Council to encourage the pursuit of artistic excellence by providing financial support to Nevada artists. The 12-month fellowships provide artists with time, materials and living expenses, and may be awarded to artists at any stage of their career development. By acknowledging outstanding artistic accomplishment, the program promotes public awareness and appreciation of the role of the artist in society.
