First, go to one of the following websites to research a particular literary journal that appeals to you. Read the publisher’s description, excerpts from recent issues, and visit the magazine’s website. You’re looking for a publication that best aligns with your style and voice. When in doubt, look for journals that you would want to read.
Now, choose a publication (ideally with a piece of fiction you can link to so we can read!). Write a brief description of your chosen publication, providing the name, website address, and the kind of work you think they’d be interested in. Tell me why you think your work, in particular, would fit nicely within that publication. Finally, tell me what their submissions guidelines are, and when/how they are accepting submissions.
