Despite predictions about the end of the printed magazine, the past few years have seen literary journals increase in number. Rather than killing print, the internet has provided myriad options to connect with readers. How can teams translate likes, impressions, and followers into sales and subscribers? Panelists who’ve worked for The Paris Review, Harper's, and F(r)iction, discuss tactics for using web content and social media to get onto shelves and into readers' hands.
