Pen Thousands of Words on Poets & Writers

When your writing spans more than 1,000 words, the number of publications you can pitch seems to dwindle, but Poets & Writer is seeking reflective essays and publishing industry trend pieces that reach up to 3,000 words.

With 80 percent of its editorial content generated by freelancers, the literary magazine deems itself ”writer-friendly” — with plenty of room for outside pitches. The “News & Trends” section brings up-to-date happenings of the publishing and literary community, “Literary Life” offers a home for long-form reflections on the writing process, and P&W is also  open to profiles of writers and poets whose books are about to be published.
