Magazine and Journal Submissions: Making Your Best Case for Publication

Tuesday, June 4, 2024
6 – 7:30PM

One of the best ways for literary artists to build a sustainable practice is publishing one’s work in print and online venues. The submission process can feel tedious and frustrating, but NYFA is here to help demystify it. The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) invites you to join in remotely for “Magazine and Journal Submissions: Making Your Best Case for Publication.” Writer Kyle Carrero Lopez will moderate a conversation with writer-editors Kamikaze Jones and Rita Mookerjee, followed by a Q&A.

Attendees will leave the session with tips and strategies for successfully navigating the journal and magazine landscape. Topics will include: determining what editors are and aren’t looking for; tricks for optimizing one’s packets of existing writing; pitching essays and other content to be drafted specifically for a particular publication; best practices for finding opportunities and keeping track of submissions; and so on.
