Posts Tagged ‘Magazines and E-zines’

If you are unpublished.  Looking into different magazines that try to help new writers become noticed is Glimmer Train Press and The New Yorker magazine.  I have a subscription to The New Yorker magazine and the stories published are slick.  Meaning they are contemporary writings.  There are realism stories along with the contemporary.  Throughout the magazine you can read about the major events happening around NYC.  It covers theater productions, musical productions and art exhibits.

I have submitted a couple of short stories to Glimmer Train Press.  They have many contests throughout the year for unpublished writers to enter.  There are several categories to choose from, and different deadlines.  For example the short-short story contest deadline is April 30.  Their website http://www.glimmertrain.com/ provides information on costs for entering and the guidelines for your writing submission.

Besides these two magazines there are many more writing contests to be found just using Google.  So good luck!images (3)

Here is a letter I wrote to the NY Times editor:

Letters to the Editor
The New York Times
620 Eighth Avenue
New York, NY 10018
letters@nytimes.com

To the editor:

It was nice to see in the newspaper an article about small businesses. The article (Small Businesses Still Struggle, and That’s Impeding a Recovery, 2/13/13) was objective and informative. As a small business owner it is nice to gain some perspectives about where the economy is headed.

At one point you make the comment big companies are benefiting from being overseas while smaller businesses are “tied to the leaden domestic economy”. That is a fact we have seen since the Clinton administration. The tax laws benefit bigger companies more than smaller ones. There wasn’t enough information in the article about a solution to this problem.

Until the economy is on the right track we will see more and more small businesses close down. The only solution is to give tax breaks and benefits to small business owners. Any kind of incentive to stay in business in our country is good for the economy.

Sincerely,

Jessica Wilson

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
