25 Prominent Magazines And Journals You Could Reach Out To In 2019


It’s beyond doubt and generally accepted that one of the significant ways to build yourself as a brand and give your art the recognition it deserves across the nook and cranny of the literary hemisphere is to get published on local and international magazines and journals.

Far beyond the social media audience that earns you no notable reputation when it comes to serious literary game, magazine/journal publication gives you desired readership and register your name where it’s expected to be.

Therefore, if you are not just a ‘roadside’ writer, meaning if you indeed seek an accomplishment with writing, then you need to go through this list ACEworld Magazine’s team has prepared.

Note that most of these magazines and journals are those you probably don’t know about because you’re not informed. You just see your friends share the links of their published works on their social media pages and you keep wondering how they go about it. People are that miserly when it comes to sharing opportunities and information.

Below are the 25 prominent magazines and journals you could reach out to in 2019:
