On BuzzFeed, Lincoln Michel gives you a guide to publishing in literary magazines. And on Catapult, Tony Tulathimutte adds his advice: How to get a story or essay published if you’re not James Franco:
- Lincoln Michel: The Ultimate Guide To Getting Published In A Literary Magazine. Here's everything you need to know before submitting your work to the literary publication of your dreams.
- Tony Tulathimutte: Pitching and Moaning: A Guide to Submitting Your Writing. How to get a story or essay published if you’re not James Franco.
Thanks, Geoff. There is some good advice here. I taught a class at the CCPL about publishing poems in magazines, and while a lot of the audience bought it, a lot of poets were like, "Oh that's too hard. I'll just publish it myself." And then they did: with typos and awful graphics. Self-publishing is fine, but if you yourself are the only person publishing you, ask yourself why that is. Even Emily Dickinson, the unfairly rejected, too unpublished poet, had 12 poems published in her lifetime. Work it, people.
