The Magazine

Founded in 1887, The Writer is one of the nation’s oldest magazines focusing on the craft of writing. If you’re passionate about books, authors, and writing, you’ll find everything you need within our pages 12 times a year.


Inside our pages each month, you’ll find practical, hands-on career and craft advice for writers of all experience levels. We also feature in-depth profiles and interviews with both emerging and established authors, plus honest feedback and tips from the industry’s top agents, editors, and publicists.

Market Listings

Every issue of The Writer includes dozens upon dozens of opportunities and markets for modern writers, including upcoming writing contests and conferences, querying preferences for agents and publishers, MFA and MA programs, and much, much more.

Journals & Conferences

Each month, we publish an in-depth profile of a new literary journal giving readers the scoop on what editors are looking for. We also profile an essential resource for writers, such as must-know conferences, professional organizations, writing podcasts, and more. 

Creativity & Inspiration

Writing prompts, creative exercises, and productivity-boosting tips will help you beat writer’s block and get the most out of your writing sessions.

All Genres Welcome

No matter if you want to write for the page, the theater, the radio, or the big screen, you’ll find coverage of all genres in our pages.
