Pangyrus “Get an Author Discovered” Nominations

screenshot of online literary magazine Pangyrus' logoOnline and print literary magazine Pangyrus offers a unique feature on their website – a nomination form. This nomination is not for any kind of award, but away for you to bring attention to an under-appreciated author.

Since “[s]ubmissions systems often discourage exactly the writers we should be hearing more from,” Pangyrus has opened up a nomination system. You go their site and tell them about a writer who deserved a wider audience and how to get in touch with them. Pangyrus will then extend an invitation to that writer to submit to their journal. They do not guarantee publication for these submissions, but they will give them their full attention.

“[I]t sends a message: someone who knows their work cares about its fate.”
