Off Campus Writers' Workshop - OCWW

Editor Panel - Which literary magazines and journals are looking for your work?

  • February 09, 2023
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM


Registration is closed

Finding the right home for your work requires understanding the literary landscape—how little magazines work, how to find them, how to interpret submissions guidelines, what to look for when deciding to enter contests, how and when to pitch your work, and more. A talented panel of editors will share their insights and advice to writers of all genres seeking publication in a journal. You’ll learn concrete tips for approaching the submissions process; you’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look at a variety of different magazines/journals and learn about what you can expect once your work is accepted. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.
