Wednesday, February 2, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm Eastern

With more than 600 literary magazines in print and hundreds more online, how can you find the magazine that’s a perfect match for your writing?


Additional Information

Let’s start with the basics: first, why do literary magazines matter to new and experienced writers? From this session, you’ll gain an insider’s perspective that demystifies magazine operations and goals. It’s true the competition to get published in literary magazines is fierce, but this session will provide you with practical strategies, advice from editors, and other invaluable resources that will quiet that nay-saying voice and inspire you to send your work into the wide, welcoming world.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn why literary magazines matter to new and experienced writers;
  • Find out who runs and funds literary magazines;
  • Be led through the process of finding the literary magazines that are most likely to admire your writing;
  • Gain a better understanding of the process of submitting your writing to literary magazines; and
  • Have the opportunity to ask all of your big and small questions about literary magazines and short form publication.

There will be time for a Q & A at the end of the presentation.
