Writing for publication

Other Resources Introduction Most writers get the attention of editors, agents, and other writers by first publishing their writing in literary magazines or literary journals.

Many literary magazines and journals will offer you a modest payment for the writing they accept, sometimes by giving you a free copy, or contributor's copy, of the issue in which your work appears. Before beginning the submission process, it is essential to research the market to determine which publications are the best venues for your writing.

Your publishing success rests on one axiom: The best place to start is our comprehensive and carefully vetted database of over twelve hundred literary magazine and journalswhere you can find details about the specific kind of writing each magazine publishes and in which formats, as well as editorial policies, submission guidelines, and contact information.

Submissions to literary magazines do not require an agent. The World of Literary Journals and Magazines—Determining Which Are Right for Your Work There are thousands of literary journals and magazines that publish creative writing, but each has a unique editorial voice, tone, viewpoint, and mission.

Some literary magazines are online only while others publish both online and print. Often print journals have websites where you can read current or archived content and get a general feel for the publication.

Bookstores often have periodicals sections that include literary journals and magazines you can browse through. Your local library may also carry a variety of literary journals and magazines, and used bookstores sometimes sell past issues.

Be sure to peruse online archives, and consider purchasing recent issues of several publications to see where work similar to yours is being published.

Back to Top Submission Guidelines When you submit your work, always be certain to follow the guidelines of each publication. Some magazines specify genres or themes in which they are or are not interested.

Some accept submissions only during certain months. Some set word limits. Some set page limits or limits on the number of poems per submission. Some do not consider previously published work.

Some specify whether you should include a cover letter. Most accept submissions through their website, but in some cases a mailed submission may require including a self-addressed stamped envelope SASE.

Some magazines charge a reading fee typically a couple dollars for the opportunity to have your work read by the editors. All writers must determine for themselves whether they are comfortable with such a fee.

Many other journals charge nothing for submissions. Simultaneous Submissions The literary world is divided in its opinion about simultaneous submissions—that is, submitting the same poem, short story, or creative nonfiction piece to multiple publications at once.

Some literary magazines and literary journals discourage the practice, as it can complicate things for them: Some publications explicitly forbid simultaneous submissions.

Cover Letters It is customary—and sometimes required—to include a short cover letter with each submission you make. Avoid using the letter as a platform to discuss the merits or themes of the work you are submitting or to summarize your writing as a whole. You may also consider mentioning any work previously published by the magazine that you admire, to show that you are familiar with the magazine to which you are submitting your writing.Writing for Scholarly Publication.
