Roundup: Getting Published

In our Roundups segment, we’re looking back at all the great posts since the blog started in 2009. We explore posts from our archives as well as other top literary magazines, centered on a certain theme to help you jump-start your week. This week we have posts on submitting and getting published.

You’ve heard it before. To get published, first you must submit. And submit. And submit.

But how do you go about doing it, and what does each journal look for? We’ve compiled posts from some of the top literary magazines and what each has to say about submission.
