We are hosting 3 info sessions in March.

In case you missed it, we just opened applications for our next cohort of editors-in-chief for our 2024 Community Anthologies. You can apply via Submittable by March 31 here, read all about the program here, or take a look back at our 2023 Community Anthologies here

If you are interested in being an EIC, we’re hosting three Zoom Info Sessions this month, which will walk you through the program, roles and responsibilities of an EIC, and information about our selection and application processes. To register for one of our info sessions, see below:

There will also be time for questions and answers at the end, so take a look through the links above and bring your questions, curiosities, and excitements. We will also be recording those sessions, so please reach out to us at if you’d like to get a recording (or have any questions in general).

What did some of our past EICs and contributors have to say about their experience in our 2023 Community Anthologies program?

  • “Being an EIC with TSW’s Community Anthologies program was hands-down one of the most rewarding experiences of the last decade for me. In addition to the program itself being suffused with so much care, thoughtfulness, and support, EICs are given the tools and opportunity to pay it all forward in a series of nurturing collaborations with their contributors.” — Briana Gwin, 2023 EIC, On Permanence
  • “There are a lot of literary magazines in the world; what sets TSW apart is the way they run. From submission to editing to publication to promotion, everyone I worked with at TSW kept things clear and well-organized, and made me feel truly valued and appreciated as a contributor.” — Jade Wallace, 2023 Contributor, On Work
  • “The EIC program, like everything TSW does, was a collaborative effort of deep care and thoughtfulness. I felt supported throughout, while also being given the freedom to see my vision through. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with passionate and meticulous people who are committed to an expansive vision of what’s possible in publishing.” — Patrycja Humienik, 2023 EIC, On Rivers
  • “There is a different feeling to being published as part of a cohort, all writing toward the same theme. Whatever that feeling is — community, care, solidarity, grace — The Seventh Wave, in its gestures, is holding this space, a space where our words can not only sit side by side but as part of a shared vision.” — David Naimon, 2023 Contributor, On Rivers
