Now we turn our attention to eight magazines and literary journals, all of which supply regularly scheduled doses of knowledge and inspiration.
Poets & Writers 6 issues per year An excellent magazine for creative writers of all types, is packed with in-depth profiles, essays on the writing life, and practical information.
Their website adds forums, event listings, and a wide range of resources—from a database of independent small presses to weekly writing prompts.
Our favorite feature: The Grants & Awards section of lists open calls for submission to grant programs, poetry prizes, writing fellowships, and more.
Scratch Quarterly, online only This new, digital-only magazine has a unique focus: the relationship between money, writing, and life.
Each issue is built around a theme and covers issues that matter to anyone trying to make a living from writing, such as contracts, freelancing, and the changing publishing industry.ORDER HERE: writ.rs/oct19 pic.twitter.com/Ka CQ9KSf8R Back to it!Today’s #writinggoals: update submission tracker, drink lots of coffee, try not to eat too many snacks and prepare my entry for the @writingmagazine #picturebookprize. #amwriting #Writing Community #kidslit #amquerying pic.twitter.com/Qa F8Fyv LYh Writers, it's not just the kids that are going back to school this September...Get in the party vibe with our carnival-themed creative writing exercise: uk/how-to-write/c…pic.twitter.com/E8oy7Bt Y57 "This Crime Writing course considers the whole process, from generating ideas and understanding genre through to planning and structuring a book that will hook readers."
