Third Verb Workshop: What Litmags Want

  • Union Bank Inn 10053 Jasper Avenue Edmonton, AB, T5J 1R2 Canada (map)

With slush piles being stacked ever higher, it takes a special kind of piece to hook an editor’s attention.

In this two-hour session with Third Verb, you’ll hear from our editor Matthew Stepanic on what excites him about the submissions he considers and publishes. He’ll discuss what happens behind the scenes of a litmag’s review process and explain why some work doesn’t earn a second glance—or sometimes more than a second of his time.

You’ll learn how to best pair your writing with the magazines that want it, along with tips and tricks to keep your work from being buried at the bottom of the slush pile.
