6G: Matching Your Work to Literary Magazines: What Do They *Really* Want?
Limited Capacity filling up

Editors say that before submitting to their literary magazine, you should read a recent issue. But why? How exactly will that help?

In this session, we'll do a close reading of four prominent literary magazines to unearth their unwritten submission guidelines-- meaning what they 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 and guilty pleasures. Bring a page of your writing, and as a group, we can decide which of the magazines may be the best fit.
