The Submission Mission: Online Literary Journals

During the October live chat, we talked about the pros and cons of print publication and online publication. The discussion raised questions and concerns, and we shared some approaches and resources.

We generally think that online submission systems might help us build regular submission habits, and we couldn't think of any online journals that didn't use online submissions systems.

We also see possibilities for quicker response and publishing…

Self-Publishing as Submission

The Submission Mission had an interesting discussion about self-publishing during the September Live Chat. I’m no expert of self-publishing, but here’s a quick follow-up to that conversation. My take-away was that self-publishing looks like an easier route but actually demands that the author put in a lot of time beyond the writing itself.

Perhaps the easiest way to self-publish is to set up a blog. I…

The Submission Mission: IDEA #2 FOR SUMMER

IDEA #2 FOR SUMMER: Define Submission Widely

            When I sit down, choose a few poems or a story to submit, and double-check the guidelines for a few literary journals, I’m in the process of submitting. Each envelope that goes out and each attachment to the online form or email counts as a submission. I’m sure we can all agree on that.…

The Submission Mission: IDEA #1 FOR SUMMER

Idea #1 for Summer: BOOK REVIEWS

One way to get some publications under your belt while you’re finishing your novel or waiting for the responses to your poems from journals is to write book reviews. Here are some of the advantages:

  • If you review a book, you have to read it. That keeps you engaged with what’s being published right now and, therefore, allows you to understand the literary context your own creative work is entering.
  • If you’re going…

Tips for Developing Submission Habits (Tip #4)


A lot of journals and literary agents have moved to doing everything electronically. Indeed, some of my post-chat submissions were accomplished by attaching a file to an email message or by using a submissions manger. But I was surprised that most of my submissions in this round—8 or 9 out of 13—were by regular postal mail.

Even if you think most of your submissions will be electronic, don’t put yourself into the situation of finding an…

Rants of a Shackled Egyptian

How badly can you want something? What would normally be the thing to do when you are placed with someone who has authority over the thing you want so much and withholds it from you? Would you walk your talk, confront them and live up with the consequences? Would you speak with fear of being denied your thing and so you acknowledge the authority lest you wake the beast?

My story today may not be that dramatic, but little violations of my rights everyday can turn me into… Continue
