New Writers Should Submit to Literary Magazines

By: J Smith

If you are a new writer, of either poetry and/or fiction, looking to get work published and read it may be worth delving into the small presses to get that first publication.

There is a plethora of hard copy magazines being published around the world. These will range from A4 photocopied publications; assembled and stapled together in bedrooms, to more glossy professional journals. Content will vary from one to another. Some may focus entirely on poetry and others may be devoted to fiction. Many though will embrace both mediums. As well as hard copy magazines in print, there are now many online publications. Once thought of as not-as-good as traditional in-print cousins, the online poetry/fiction magazine is now more respected with a lot of writers gaining more exposure for their work.

All magazines whether it be in conventional hard copy print or online will constantly be looking for new writers. It is always advisable to get to know the magazine you are interested in submitting to because a) you can decide whether your work will fit the publication and b) purchasing a copy of the magazine will show that you are willing to support it.

One such magazine, , is one of the most respected currently being published in the world. The origins of the magazine date back to 2001. Two writers who were tired of the more overtly literary tones of the standard journals were moved to start their own to embrace writers who may have been ignored by those mainstream publications.

The magazine has grown since then into a highly professional paperback with writers contributing from all around the world. Currently each issue sells around 600 copies shipping to all corners of the globe. Aside from and the magazine also featured contemporary reviews and interviews.
