EDIT 3/7/2013: Adding a bit more warning about self-publishing (lack of) success and agents abroad, based on the very good advice of ^neurotype. :cake:


A companion to my now-retitled Idiot's Guide to Lit Mag Publishing and my Publishing Resources List, where you can find resources for all the steps of this guide, include query letter writing, finding an agent, marketing, and more.

I wrote this during a heatwave so if anything looks wrong or misspelled please yell at me.

I would add that you don't have to seek out an agent based on location, either—if you're writing in English you can have a US/UK agent (I haven't heard of Canadian agents, but I imagine that would fly too) regardless of where you live. Also I'd make the caution about self publishing a lot stronger, because the many self-publishing success stories are like a drop in the overall ocean of self-pubbers. :B

:lmao: All that I've learnt from being Canadian is that it is completely pointless to get a Canadian agent.

I promise I'm not ignoring this comment, I'm just trying to find some time to update the actual guide with your astute observations because I've been running around nonstop. :lol:
