The Publishing Lab - Helping Stories Find Homes Est. 2000


Rejection is universal. As emerging writers, we choose to make ourselves vulnerable by submitting our work. What a scary (but rewarding) process! Sometimes, however, it's hard to click that submit button. Or to find a magazine having a conversation you want your work to be part of. Or to figure out just how to start. That’s where the Publishing Lab comes in: browse our market research, engaging interviews, and even check out what we're saying on Facebook.
