NYC-based readers: On June 19-20, check out the CLMP’s Lit Mag Marathon Weekend, an annual celebration, showcase, and discount extravaganza of literary magazines and journals.
– Events kick off on Saturday at 4 PM with The Magathon at the New York Public Library (main branch: Fifth Ave @ 42nd Street). For 2.5 hours, a number of journal editors will present favorite selections from their latest issues.
– Then on Sunday from noon to 5, get your discounted periodical fix at the 11th Annual Literary Magazine Fair (also known as the Giant Lit Mag Fair) at Housing Works Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St.). Hundreds of mags will be marked down…some by more than 50%! Meet the editors and learn more about the staggering variety of literary magazines/journals seeking new work and new readers.
If you can’t make it next weekend but want to learn more about what lit journals are out there–and what they’re looking for–the CLMP is currently offering its annually updated Literary Press and Magazine Directory for only $20.
