If you’re interested in starting your own magazine or seeing the sausage factory of magazines, click here to listen to the panel I got to participate in, “Trying on New Bootstraps: Self-Sustaining Models for Literary Magazines.”
I represented The Lumberyard Magazine, in with Versal Journal‘s Megan Garr (one of my favorite magazines and editors) and Electric Literature‘s Halimah Marcus (the groundbreaking online fiction outlet).
What’s the take-away here? Don’t give your work away for free. Think about what you add to the market, what you do differently, and market it.
What is The Lumberyard? Oh, I’m so glad you asked.
