  • From the Association of Writers & Writing Programs: “Many of the essays published in the Writer’s Chronicle began as contributions to panel discussions at our annual conference. If you participated in a panel discussion in Chicago, we encourage you to develop your talk into an essay for the editors’ consideration. We are not interested in transcripts of talks. Instead, we seek works on your topic that you have fully developed, in content and in form, to work well as an essay in print. If others have addressed your topic before you, your essay should demonstrate an awareness of their contributions to our intellectual and artistic community. Please see our editorial guidelines at before submitting your work. The Chronicle has a circulation of 39,000 readers. For the next academic year, the magazine will pay $14 per one hundred words for accepted articles.”
