Find your available means of persuasion As a Writer

Lit Mag Love Podcast episode: “The Nasiona—Persuade with Julián Esteban Torres López.” Dedicated episode profile on Julián, where he discussed his nonfiction storytelling organization The Nasiona, and how with it he amplifies the voices and experiences of the marginalized. Lit Mag Love (rebranded as Write, Publish, and Shine) is a podcast hosted by Rachel Thompson for creative writers who want to publish and which answers the question: What do editors want?

POSTSCRIPT: I do want to point out that, as a writer, I write for myself first and foremost. And, as my friend Jenzo DuQue says, “when I send work out, I’m looking for an editor who sees the potential, who wants to manifest and amplify my vision.” Keep this in mind as you listen, because when I say that you are also writing for the stranger, it’s ultimately that stranger who wants to take you under their wing and amplify YOU, without forcing you into something Other that coddles racists, sexists, xenophobes, and other bigots, because they want your piece to be more marketable. In the discussion, I want you to be aware that your ideal editor has certain evaluative criteria, so how can you find your available means of persuasion to get onto that editor’s radar and have them elevate you? That’s the competition, and that’s what I try to dissect in this interview, from my perspective as the senior founding editor of The Nasiona.
