On-line VS Print Publication

When I first began Writers' Wings there was still a bias against on-line publication. Even tho I could see the writing on the wall (screen, that is) I was still encountering resistance to submitting to on-line journals. Now that many of the major literary journals, such as The Missouri Review, have a digital editions as well as print, the tide has definitely turned. Three of my clients have been published on-line and one of them even created an on-line journal to showcase the work created during her writers retreats.

For a really well-written exploration of on-line versus print, check out this article on The Review Review. It also lays out the road map that I follow when working on submissions for my clients.
