Writer David Hancock On How To Publish Online
At some point, everyone’s the new kid on the block. For writers, this situation can be extremely daunting. You may be wondering, “Who would want an unpublished writer?” or “Where do I even start?” While these concerns are legitimate, you shouldn’t let them deter you.
Rest assured that every author started out as an unpublished writer. There are many editors of literary magazines, and presses that not only accept books, short stories, poems, and novels of writers new to the scene, but encourage submissions from unpublished writers. With so much talent yet to be discovered, it would be to an agent’s or editor’s disadvantage to only consider work by well-known and published writers. As we like to think: There’s a place for everyone!
GalleyCat, a publishing industry blog, posted this just in time for women’s history month:
VIDA: Women in Literary Arts have released a report entitled “The Count 2011,” revealing that male writers outnumbered female writers in many publications last year.
Picking up on where last year’s report left off, this report tracks the statistics of gender balance among writers published at literary magazines, including The New Yorker (overall: 165 women, 459 men), Poetry (overall: 134 women, 179 men) and The Threepenny Review (overall: 19 women, 37 men).
They also looked at authors reviewed, book reviewers, and interviews at certain publications, including: Harper’s (book reviewers: 13 women, 65 men) and The New York Times (book reviewers: 273 women, 520 men).
Writer’s Relief Demographics
At Writer’s Relief, we take these numbers seriously; all writers should. Regardless of what factors may be causing this imbalance, the imbalance in and of itself is worth attention and concern.
The good news is that the publishing industry—thanks in part to the analysis of groups like VIDA, as well as the outcries of high-profile authors like Jennifer Weiner and Jodi Picoult—is starting to pay closer attention to its own practices.
And we at Writer’s Relief thought we would do the same.
