How to Get Published in Recommended Reading (Video)



About a third of the stories published in Recommended Reading are unsolicited submissions, which share space in the magazine with work by Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners. Unlike some legacy lit mags, we really are reading all the work you send in, and we really do publish it. So how can you make your stories stand out among the thousands of submissions we receive every year? Recommended Reading’s editorial team—Halimah Marcus, Brandon Taylor, Erin Bartnett, and Alyssa Songsiridej—pull back the curtain on their decision-making process and offer invaluable advice to short story writers. A must-watch for anyone who is planning to submit. Conversation followed by audience Q&A. This event took place on Friday, December 11, 2020, as part of Electric Literature’s Winter Salon Series presented by Reedsy. After purchase, you will receive an email with a private link to stream the video as often as you like. Runtime is 1 hr 29 min.
