Have you ever wished you could be in the room when an editor reads your submission, able to hear all his/her thoughts? During these 15-minute sessions, a literary journal editor will share feedback in real time on the first page of your manuscript. We will matchmake you based on the genre in which you’re writing. Participating editors include: Carrie Muehle (TriQuarterly), Chris Fink (Beloit Fiction Journal), Sara Cutaia (Arcturus), Kenyatta Rogers (Rhino Poetry), Brandon Taylor (Electric Literature), Lyz Lenz (Rumpus), and Richard Thomas (Gamut Magazine).Top
