Literary Journal Industry Standards
Literary Journals or Literary Magazines, are collections of writing in one volume. They are often anthologies of short stories, excepts of longer pieces, poetry, criticism, essays, author profiles of new writers, etc. While they don’t have a standard size, most resemble magazines and are put out in a semi-regular cycle often printed on uncoated paper to stand apart from their glossy superficial cousins. Just because these journals are meant to appeal to your mind doesn’t mean they shouldn’t also appeal to your eye. Modern journals mix it up with full color artwork, hard cover binding, and unique sizes.
