Submitting to Lit Magazines with Intention

Many writers get their start publishing in literary magazines, but with so many wonderful publications out in the world, it can feel overwhelming to begin the work of submitting. It can be easy to let the inevitable disappointment of rejection stall your path to publication, but I’d like to invite students to re-conceptualize the practice of submitting to literary magazines as an exercise in locating and celebrating a community of peer writers. In this course, we will discuss methods and strategies for identifying journals that will bring your writing into a community you’ll be proud to be a part of. We will also discuss the fundamentals of submitting to journals, share journals that center BIPOC, LGBTQ2+, and Disabled voices, as well as knowing when your work is ready to submit.
