Publishing Basics
Online Literary Magazine

It is one thing to be a poet - it is quite another to create a welcoming environment that promotes the talents of poets from around the world. Aspiring to run a literary magazine is the dream of many of us out there. Yes, you can promote your own words if you choose as part of your efforts - but far more than that, you can create a publication that will be read by millions of people. You can choose the genre of your efforts. Maybe you can create a literary review focusing on peace and harmony? How about one with a science fiction slant? Whatever you choose, that is what will exist.

Not only are you gathering together great talents to showcase, but you get to enjoy your end result! What better way to learn about the best writers who focus on medieval romance, than to create a literary review which has that as its main aim? If you simply adore gothic vampire literature, having a literary review that swirls around that genre will both make you happy each day, and draw in a cadre of fans who feels the exact same way. It is one of those projects that becomes full of true satisfaction.

There are many basics to consider when you embark on this type of project. It will involve a fair amount of work, and I go step by step through those processes below. If you stick with it, it can be one of the most rewarding things you have ever done!

Good luck!
