James R. Gapinski’s story, “Migratory Patterns,” was one of 25 finalists for Glimmer Train‘s recent “Very Short Fiction Award.”
The Conium Review‘s Managing Editor, James R. Gapinski, will be on a panel at this year’s AWP conference in Seattle, WA.
“Let’s Avoid a Quick Death, Please: Starting and Sustaining a New Literary Publication”
Room 301, Western New England MFA Annex, Level 3
Thursday, February 27th, 2014
3:00pm to 4:15pm
This panel explores the process of starting and sustaining a new literary publication. Countless small presses and journals launch every year only to die after a couple issues. Let’s talk with some people who avoided that fate. This panel will discuss how to choose the right publishing medium, secure funding, attract readers, and deal with unexpected hurdles.
Chelsea Werner-Jatzke moderates.
