Getting Your Foot in the Door: Publishing in Literary Magazines

Want to submit your work to magazines but don’t know how? Then join us on Wednesday, January 16 when Meg Eden will visit MWA to teach us all the secrets to getting published in literary magazines. In this workshop, we’ll talk about what literary magazines are, what editors are looking for in submissions, have a “translation” exercise, tips on how to get the most out of a lit mag, and the secrets to writing a great cover letter to get an editor’s attention. The skills you learn in this session can easily apply to other publication realms, including writing to agents and editors of small book presses. All participants will receive a complimentary magazine of their choice.
