Thirteen Literary Journals that Publish Novel Excerpts

“Thirteen Literary Journals that Publish Novel Excerpts” by Emily Harstone | 11th July, 2016 | Authors Publish.

“Literary journals are one of the best ways to build a publication history. They give agents and publishing houses a reason to take your manuscript submission seriously. However, most literary journals publish short stories, poems, non-fiction, and flash fiction, not novel excerpts.

That is fine as many novelists also write other work. Some do not. This is why it is great to find literary journals that publish novel excerpts. This is also helpful if you are looking to promote your novel. If a reader stumbles across your novel excerpt in a literary journal, they may go ahead and buy your novel.
