Links: Organizations & Publications

Writing is a solitary pursuit and yet, like everyone else, writers need to network, especially when it comes to the business side of the literary endeavor. We hope you’ll find the following resources for writers useful.

PUBLICATIONS of interest to creative writers

Publishing your work — and finding a literary community in which you feel you belong — is important. Why? Elizabeth Ayres explains it this way, in the Afterword to Writing the Wave:

… a piece of writing is like a battery. It’s charged with your feelings, memories, imaginings and so forth. But batteries are not meant to sit on shelves. Batteries have a purpose in life, a destiny to fulfill. They’re meant to light up flashlights, keep radios running at the beach, make little pink bunnies go on and on. Your creative writing has a purpose, too. A destiny, if you will.

We encourage you to take the next step, to get your work out into the world where it belongs — a world that needs your wisdom. We hope we’ve given you a helpful writing resource by providing links to a broad spectrum of literary magazines, online and off! Each magazine will have some sort of ‘guidelines for submissions’ page.
