Finding the Best Place to Submit Essays by Reading Best American Essays --- Adam Regn Arvidson | Numéro Cinq
Former NC contributor Adam Regn Arvidson makes a return visit with some salutary advice for the beginning essayist (and maybe the not-so-beginning essayist) on where to find submission venues. The advice he gives happens to accord with my own practice in the dark eons before time, the years of my apprenticeship. The best way to give you story or essay or poem a chance at a life is to submit to magazine that are reviewed by the standard anthologies: Best American/Canadian (Stories, Essays...), Pushcart, O'Henry, etc.
