Goodnight, Fair LadyToday's Tune:
Hey dudes! I'm going to be popping back in with updates. I'm aiming for my usual 3x a week, but it may be a little more sporadic than usual. Life and stuff!
I was recently contacted by the editor at a literary magazine, who asked me if I'd update my master list of YA literary magazines with their publication. So I did that, and I'm also letting all my lovely YA writers and readers know about their call for submissions. Here's the information I received from the editor, Mureall Hébert:
"Soundings Review, a bi-annual publication in conjunction with the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts MFA program, publishes poetry, fiction, children/young adult, and prose, including essays and interviews. Deadlines: January 1, 2013 – for the Spring/Summer issue; May 1, 2013 – for the Fall/Winter issue. Guidelines can be found at: www.nila.edu/soundings/submissions/"
I originally started my master list of YA lit mags because I was having a difficult time finding magazine publications that would take submissions from YA writers who are older than 23 (there are a lot of magazines out there that publish teen fiction, but apparently only if you're college-age or younger). This was back when I was looking for places to have my short work published, which would ideally give me writing credits for when I was querying. I did end up publishing with Hunger Mountain, which gave me a nice shiny credit, so I think it was worth it! I hope other writers can find similar use for the list.
See you Wednesday, I hope!
