Sharing the Love: Last Sunday of August (2014)

Today, while self was poking around in her closet, she came upon a binder where she lists all the literary magazines she’s submitted to, organized per year.

She’s decided to share the 2014 list right here, right now. Because it is so onerous keeping that information to herself.

It’s probably as amazing to self as it is to her readers that there are so many. In truth, in the last few years, she has become rather manic about submissions. Looking back at the long trajectory of her writing life, there were many years when she’d send out to just a handful of magazines. She must be making up for lost time.

And, let’s not kid ourselves, the internet has made a huge difference. Now, it’s so easy to just press a button that says “Submit.” Whereas when she first started sending stuff out, every piece had to be printed out, photocopied, slapped into an envelope, then metered at a post office. Frankly, who had the time?

    • Agni
    • Alaska Quarterly Review (Having serious financial problems, may close)

  • Bluestem
  • Boulevard
  • Brevity
  • Carve Magazine
  • Columbia
  • Ecotone
  • Elsewhere
  • Fugue
  • The Georgia Review
  • Kartika Review
  • Massachusetts Review
  • NANO Fiction
  • Necessary Fiction
  • New Letters
  • New Ohio Review
  • North Atlantic Review
  • Prairie Schooner
  • Salamander
  • Raleigh Review
  • Subtropics
  • The Café Irreal
  • The Cincinnati Review
  • The Farallon Review
  • The Minnesota Review
  • The Sun
  • The Tusculum Review

So . . .  all of the above, excellent places, some of which have actually accepted work from self, or written her personal rejections. Some are places that self knows will never publish her, the odds are just too great. But still she sends to them, and will continue to send, year after year.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.

    Wow–you submitted work to all these places in one year?

    That is impressive–I haven’t even heard of some.

      Hi, Kyi,

      “I haven’t even heard of some” — that’s why I called the post “sharing the love.” I’m sure not everyone has the time to live on the internet, as I do. I think I spend 70% of my waking life on the internet. So I thought: why not share the gift(s) of my research on lit mags with the world? I woud like to know that all this looking into different magazines is helping someone!
