    How Can I "Officially" Publish an Essay?

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by The95Writer, Jul 13, 2015.

    I have a few academic essays and numerous blog posts. I use my blog posts to make it easier to publish my works, but some essays can be a bit too long and I wouldn't mind getting some of my essays to a wider audience.

    Do you have any tips on how to publish essays "officially" rather than simply uploading them to a blog?

    You'll have to submit them to markets that publish such type of essays. Here are some that I know of (by no means a complete list):

    AGNI
    Paris Review
    Missouri Review
    Southern Review
    New Letters
    American Scholar
    Slate
    Tin House
    Virginia Quarterly Review

    Some are tougher than others, but those are the only markets I can think of that would be interested in academic essays.

    Also, what exactly do you mean by academic essays? I'm assuming they're not like the essays published in academic journals. Are you talking about something like creative nonfiction?

    Ever thought of sending them to the Op/Ed of a newspaper?

    Thanks for that list. By "academic", I mean essays I have for research assignments in further/higher education about a specific event or topic. The essays are usually around 2,500 words and have citations.

    It sounds like those would be published in academic journals then.

    Note, that particular essays are in the category of music.

    Did you manage it? I have written a couple of academic essays myself and would like to know if you got the result you wanted.
