Lit Mags -- What You Need to Know to Get Published
What You Need to Know About Lit Mags
Our Literary Magazines database is a powerful tool for targeting your submissions and getting published. It includes listings for 977 journals, providing details about the kind of work sought, authors previously published, submission guidelines, payment policies, tips from the editors, and more.
Some new additions include:
Flycatcher, an online journal that "strives to explore what it means -- or what it might mean -- to be native to this earth and its particular places."
Neutrons Protons, a monthly journal of creative nonfiction; the editors seek "your McSweeney's rejects."
TAYO, which looks for "writing that knifes, lifts, and strikes at the emotive truth of all things lost and adrift."
Our most important tip? Read the literary magazines in which you'd like to publish before you submit your work, so that you can evaluate if it is a good match. Find more advice here.
