This September, we decided to start a weekly Featured Market post. Each Wednesday, we’ll pinpoint a magazine, competition or anthology that we think you should pay attention to. We know it’s time consuming to trawl through the thousands of markets out there, find one that’s suitable for you, scan through their submission guidelines and then eventually submit; so we thought we’d do the hard work for you.
This week’s Featured Market is The Lampeter Review – TLR for short.
What’s great about TLR is that they’re a really high quality publication. Seriously, it looks amazing. They publish prose, poetry and plays from writers such as Joe Dunthorne, David Vann, Rachel Tresize, and many other household names, including Online Writing Tips very own Tyler Keevil & DD Johnston!
But they also publish new and emerging writers. And that’s why it’s brilliant. If you’re an unpublished writer, you have a great opportunity to be published alongside some established authors, in a beautifully compiled publication.
Take a look at their Submission Guidelines below:
One submission per issue, in one file, of the following:
Prose: no more than 3,000 words in length.
Poetry: either 3 short poems or 1 long poem.
Plays/Screenplays: 1 scene (10 pages max.)
Please also include a short bio (4 sentences max.)
If your work is accepted, please wait an issue before submitting again.
Have a look, read some previous issues, and get submitting!
