An 2015 AWP event.

Filled with writers, Twitter is an optimal place for literary journals to gain interest from readers, but when you are the voice behind a literary journal, how do you know whom to follow or how often to tweet? This panel of tweeters from Better Magazine, Indiana Review, NANO Fiction, The Paris Review, and Ploughshares will discuss the ways in which literary journals use Twitter accounts to promote authors and gain subscribers while also sharing the rewards and regrets of having an account.

Moderated by Sophie Rosenblum, digital director Justin Alvarez is joined by Katie Moulton, Kent Shaw, and Miriam Cook.
