TW publishes first-person journalism—features told from the first-person POV of varying lengths, many of which are think pieces about books, movies, well-known authors, literary and cultural trends, or teaching writing. While we publish very few straightforward book reviews in the magazine, we're interested in the personal connections that readers (and writers) make to books and authors.
Think of such features as falling under the "Reader's Life" or "Writer's Life." We ask that your approach be personal, passionate, and factually accurate. Please avoid an overly academic tone.
In addition, we're always looking for thoughtful essays on our themes. For more information, please see TW's Upcoming Themes.
A nonfiction note: Be sure to verify all factually based information, attribute all direct
quotes, and provide your sources.
