Find an knowledgeable reader of my essay?
July 23, 2012 12:47 PM Subscribe
I have a manuscript of a roughly philosophical/literary essay, and I'm trying to figure out where I should try to publish it. How can I find someone objective, with solid knowledge of "high-brow" magazines and related publications, to read my piece and tell me where it might best fit and what my chances are of publishing it in various venues?

For the main part of your question - finding a reviewer - at this stage, because your essay sounds quite experimental and you're not sure what it is yet, I'd approach people you already know first to provide initial feedback. A friend or family member. Save the objective review for when you're a bit closer to understanding what you've got, so that you get the most from their time.
