Managing an Online Literary Magazine: An Interview with Carol L White and AE Decker

Episode 158I Managing Online Lit Magazine

EPISODE 158I

Join us today as Carol L Wright and AE Decker from the Bethlehem Writers Group share their wisdom and experiences in creating an online literary magazine.

Carol and Ann explain how it all started, some of the mistakes made along the way, and how they found their groove. In addition to the quarterly literary magazine, Bethlehem Writers Roundtable (a paying market!), the group also publishes an anthology of short stories every other year.

Early each year they host a contest based on the theme of the anthology. The annual winners are published in the anthology, and the runners-up are published in the online magazine. A celebrity judge chooses the best story. In 2019, John Grogan, author of Marley and Me, was the final judge. In 2020, Spencer Quinn/Peter Abrahams, author of the Chet & Bernie Mysteries, will be the celebrity judge.

More information on the contest can be found at the Bethlehem Writers Roundtable site. You can find Carol at her website and on Facebook. Ann can be found at her website, and on Twitter. Her publisher’s website is World Weaver Press.
