What Newsweek’s Big News Means For Writers

Recently, the major news magazine Newsweek made an announcement that analysts have seen coming for years: After eighty years in print, Newsweek will be completely online. And the change isn’t going to be happening slowly: December 31 will be the last time we’ll see the magazine in print.

So what does this have to do with creative writers, you ask? (Good question.)

Newsweek is a publication that probably makes more money than all of the top literary journals combined—of course that’s not an official calculation, but we’ll call it an educated estimate.

If a reputable and popular publication like Newsweek is going online, you can bet literary journals everywhere are making the switch too (we know; we’ve seen it happening).

Fantastic literary magazines such as




have already switched from print to digital editions in recent years.

Remember those days (not too very long ago) when writers complained that the only legitimate kind of publication was a print publication? Let’s just say, it’s hard to imagine anyone saying that a byline in Newsweek isn’t impressive—even if the magazine is going online.

It’s the same for reputable online literary journals. So break out those e-submissions, writers, and step into the future of the publishing industry by supporting online literary journals.
