It’s the inaugural post of the column you’ve decided to write about running a lit mag, and you’re trying to think of the best possible way to start. Here’s your first idea: WHAT TO KNOW WHEN DECIDING TO START YOUR OWN LIT MAG You run with this in your head for a while, plotting what […]
The post A Day in the Life of a Literary Arts Journal Editor appeared first on Real Pants.
The first fellow editor I’ve decided to speak with for Real Pants is Katie Raissian, Editor in Chief of her own print literary arts journal, Stonecutter. Katie and I decided once, during a previous conversation, that Gigantic Sequins and Stonecutter were like the journal each of us would put together if were weren’t producing the ones […]
The post Paper and Ink: A Conversation with Katie Raissian of Stonecutter appeared first on Real Pants.
Being an editor has taught me so much about my own strengths and weaknesses and limits. And I probably do too much already, but the "too much" I do feels so important: emailing venues about reading spaces for contributors and listening to their podcasts and being thrilled by their latest work in a different journal and reading articles about diversity and publishing and motivating those I need to make GS happen to do things, uncompensated.

Literally, the submissions were photocopies of paper submissions that student writers put into a cardboard box in the library, so the font chosen sometimes lent itself […]
The post The Days of ‘Respectfully Decline’ and How they Led Here: Submittable as a Tool appeared first on Real Pants.
Last JOURNAL JOURNAL I posted about Submittable and why it’s essential for lit journals. While Submittable is the best friend an editor has, it’s not the only friend. Here are some other great–and perhaps necessary–resources for a lit journal’s tool kit. Gigantic Sequins would not be what it is today or even be possible without most of […]
