Submit to Indie Lit!
with
Lise Quintana

If you're still new to submitting, smaller independent literary journals are a great place to break in—most of them are starving for great content. Learn how to find the right lit journal for your work, and how to maximize your chances for success using a submission management program.

Lise Quintana’s work can be found in SLAB, Red Fez, Drunk Monkeys, Instant Magazine, The Rambler, and Role Reboot, among others. She headed Zoetic Press, which produced the journal NonBinary Review and the Viable chapbook series. She is the former editor in chief of Lunch Ticket, the literary journal of Antioch Universtiy Los Angeles’s MFA program. She’s the inventor of the Lithomobilus ereader, a program for creating and reading nonlinear literature. She is active with the Bay Area Book Festival, Litquake, and National Novel Writing Month. Her latest effort is a podcast about weight-related issues called Living Large in America.
