When I was Wayde Compton’s mentor assistant in SFU’s Writer’s Studio I offered free consultations to students about how to submit to literary magazines. I figured I knew what I was talking about judging by the pile of rejection letters I’ve received. One student, to whom I showed my geeky, colour coded submissions binder, my submissions excel sheet and contest deadline calendar, said: “You should teach this.” So when Betsy Warland approached me to write a guide on this topic I was happy to pass the information along. Finally, my borderline compulsive organizational skills pay off. I compiled tips from other submissions-savvy writers I knew and composed a 50-page comprehensive guide. Now, you can read it too! The Writer‘s Guide to Publishing in Literary Magazines and Entering Contests is available as a free PDF download here. Enjoy!
