If you’ll be at the AWP conference on March 28, join editors from Poetry, The Offing, Ecotone, Vinyl, and New England Review for a discussion about submitting to lit mags.
Panel description: When writers send their work to magazines, they know it will be just one in thousands. What makes one submission stand out from all the others? At this panel, five lit mag editors talk about what they want from a submission—and what they don’t want. They cover the practical as well as the more elusive questions, giving writers a chance to get beyond the guidelines and ask questions of their own.
