Publishing in Literary Magazines: Where Do I Begin?

The landscape of literary magazines can be overwhelming. With over 600 journals on the market, how does a writer know where to submit work? Is it better to aim for prestigious journals and hope to catch the eye of literary agents? Or is it better to submit to journals with high acceptance rates? Should writers submit to dozens of journals at once or focus on a specific journal? What are the advantages of publishing online? Which editors give writers feedback on their work? What should go in the cover letter? Tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. at the Central Library, Becky Tuch, founding editor of The Review Review, will answer these questions and more, giving you the information you need to start publishing in (and enjoying) literary magazines.

This free program is supported in part by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. All are welcome to attend.
