Connect with Literary Magazine Editors

Are you a fiction writer looking to publish in a literary magazine or journal? Have you maxed out your collection of rejection letters and want to move up to an acceptance or two?

Who better to bring you up to speed with tips of the trade than the editors of the literary magazines themselves?

This Saturday, May 5, writers in the Baltimore-DC area have the opportunity to meet more than 30 editors from a mix of today’s most respected and cutting-edge literary magazines. Learn to master the submissions game directly from them -- the people who make the decisions day in and day out -- how to get your work accepted.

Editors from The Baltimore Review, Gettysburg Review, Gargoyle, Painted Bride Quarterly, Potomac Review, Smartish Place, StoryQuarterly, The Urbanite, Ballyhoo Stories, Barrelhouse, JMWW, and American Poet will all be present.

The Conversations and Connections Conference -- practical advice on getting published -- begins at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday and ends at 6:45 p.m. with a literary happy hour. You can register at the door, or go to their website to do so online at the conference website link below.

Registration is only $35, and that includes a one-year subscription to the literary journal of your choice.

Hope to see you at the conference!
