Writing For Literary Magazines--
A Chapters and Chocolate LIVE Interview

Literary magazines--or litmags as they're often called--have been around for centuries. And now that they have gone digital they're more widespread than ever before. 

Did you know that getting your work published in litmags will make you more appealing to literary agents and publishers?

Or that some literary agents look through the pages of litmags in search of new talent?

Or that sometimes writers don't even realize that their style of writing is what literary magazines are looking for.

If you didn't, that's OK. I've got you covered.

On Chapters and Chocolate LIVE, I discussed All Things LitMag with Rachel Thompson, published author and former managing editor of the literary magazine Room. Her book of poetry, Galaxy (Anvil Press, 2011), won the SFU First Book Competition. Rachel helps writers level-up their writing lives with practical advice and kind support.

 
What we covered:

• How to determine if your writing is literary
• The benefits of submitting to lit mags
• How publishing in lit mags can improve your writing
• How to make valuable connections for your writing career through journal publishing
• What the heck lit mag editors want in submissions
• Why one editor may accept a piece and another reject the very same piece
• How to know if a journal is the right place to send your work
