Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity is the blog and writing resource site by writer Erica Verrillo. Her site is loaded with great articles for writers and the writing life, including listings of publishers, agents, where to get reviews, submission calls, free contests, writing conferences and more.
This list of university literary journals includes details of when they are open to submissions and whether or not they charge fees. Why submit to university journals? Verrillo explains, “these journals have a ‘captive audience.’ Students, professors, and university staff read them, and depending on the size of the university that can be a lot of people.”
Erica Verrillo has written seven books and published five. She doesn’t know why anyone with an ounce of self-preservation would ever want to publish. But, if you insist on selling your soul to the devil, learn how to do it right: marketing, literary agents, book promotion, editing, pitching your book, how to get reviews, and … most important of all … everything she did wrong. In the interests of protecting the right to free speech, she did not vote for Trump.
