5A: What Literary Magazine Are You? Get to Know 5 Literary Magazines Up Close and Personal
Limited Capacity seats available

Everyone tells you that before submitting to a literary magazine, you should read a recent issue, but why? What will you learn? In this session, we will take a close reading of 5 prominent literary magazines to determine their unwritten submission guidelines, meaning what they really publish in terms of style, length, and subjects. From the editors of those magazines, I'll glean 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 five magazines is the best fit for it.
