Writing Lifers: In the comments section of this post, please post your four lit mags. Provide a URL address for each magazine, indicate which category you believe each magazine fits into, and then provide the following basic info:
Editor(s) name, including genre editors (if applicable)
Does the publication read submissions year-round or is there a specific reading period?
Does the publication accept simultaneous submissions?
Does the publication accept on-line submissions?
Are there any unusual submission guidelines/requirements?
In your opinion, what makes this venue worth considering?
Don’t forget, two good places to find this information are newpages.com and Poets & Writers “Tools for Writers” page.
And, last but not least, here’s an example of what I’m looking for:
Red Mountain Review
T.J. Beitelman, Editor; Jim Murphy and Mary Kaiser, Poetry Editors.
Reads January 1 through April 15 each year.
Accepts simultaneous submissions.
Does not accept on-line submissions.
RMR accepts submissions to its annual poetry chapbook contest and doesn’t charge an entry fee. $500 and publication to the winner.
The chapbook contest is a good opportunity and it’s free. A good mix of “emerging and established” writers in the magazine itself. The quality of the writing is pretty high but an unpublished writer stands a chance of placing work here.
