How to Get Published in The Commuter (Video)
Unlike most literary magazines, The Commuter chooses its weekly piece of poetry, flash, graphic, or experimental narrative almost exclusively from unsolicited submissions—9 out of 10 issues are drawn from the so-called “slush.” (We don’t think it’s slush!) Work published in The Commuter has been recognized by Best American Poetry and Comics, the Wigleaf Top 50, and Best Small Fictions. But we get thousands of submissions every year, and only publish 52 issues. So how can you help your work get recognized? Commuter editors Halimah Marcus, Kelly Luce, and Ed Skoog invite you behind the scenes for a frank editorial discussion that is a must-watch for anyone planning to submit. This event took place on Wednesday, December 16, 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 3 min.
