10J: Sizing Up Your Publishing Prospects: What do Literary Magazines *Really* Want?
Limited Capacity seats available

Editors say that before submitting to their literary magazine, you should read a recent issue. That's because even they can't adequately describe what they're looking for. Just read their submission guidelines! But even after you read an issue, how can tell if a magazine is right for your work?

In this session, we'll use four prominent literary magazines as models for mining unwritten submission guidelines-- meaning what editors really publish in terms of style and subjects. From the editors of those magazines, we'll share publishing statistics, break-in genres, as well as personal pet peeves, guilty pleasures, and other insider tips. Not only will you leave knowing how to find the magazines right for your work, you might go home with a magazine, too.
