This semester I’m taking a magazine class. In this class, we’ll be learning how to get our works published in literary magazines. This is my first post.
Things I know/love:
- Books (mostly YA fantasy, but some memoirs)
- Music (mostly indie, pop punk, and regular punk, but I dabble in just about any type of music except country)
- Being funny (sometimes?)
- Being a lady (sometimes)
- A good home cooked meal
- There are a lot of other things that I can’t think of right now
10 magazines that would be good for my work:
Barrelhouse accepts a variety of different works, like poetry, essays, and reviews, all of which I write. Also, I think they mix the perfect amount of seriousness and humor, which I tend to do, too.
2) The Rumpus
I’d like to think that sometimes my writing is pretty funny, and The Rumpus has some hilarious content. Especially a lot of hilarious content written by women.
Another funny magazine. Also, Ali got accepted here. I love Ali.
Oddly enough, in the almost four years that I’ve gone to Pitt-Greensburg, I’ve never submitted to Pendulum. I would like to change that.
This is a magazine by women for women. I am a woman. They are looking for emerging and established writers. I am an emerging writer.
6) The Offbeat
Another magazine that highlights humor and, like the name suggests, the offbeat. I can get down with that.
This magazine is based in my home, the ever-wonderful land of the Amish (aka Lancaster). I write a lot about family and home, so my pieces would probably find a good home here.
Another magazine based in central Pennsylvania. Its goal is to publish writers from Lancaster, York, and Harrisburg. It seems like they mostly do fiction, which I don’t write that often, but I’d like to give it a try.
This is a magazine that publishes a lot of stories about humans. Interestingly enough, I’m a human, and I love telling stories about my life.
10) Under the Sun
They’re a journal dedicated to creative nonfiction, which is my favorite thing to write.
