View Full Version : Looking for places to submit writing
04-19-2009, 11:38 AM
While I am chewing on the huge mess of a novel draft I created last year, I'd like to have alternate, smaller writing projects that I can work on to help refresh my creative juices. I like writing stories, particularly sci-fi but also a little zombie and a little fantasy and horror and would like to try to submit stories to either magazines or online only resources. I know that there are a number of you who do this and since I never have, I was looking for input on places I should try.

Get copy of Writer's Market, or the short-story specific version. They're pretty great resources for submitting work. They give all the info you need, what styles and lengths the publications accept, submission deadlines, whether they accept unsolicited manuscripts, who to address your cover letter to, whether they pay and how much, and even more stuff. The books are like 30 bucks, but if you want to submit work to print publications they're the best resource I know of.

I personally go to www.allpoetry.com website where that Storywrite is a part of that website. I've been a member (for free) for more than 5 years. Great community.

This website is a searchable and up-to-date database of writers markets. It's got sci-fi/fantasy/horror stuff, among everything else.
It's the bomb diggity, even though nothing I've sent out has been accepted.
If you ever want to exchange work for editing and criticism, PM me.

beyond uploading your work to other sites, have you ever thought about having your own website? that way you could have everything you ever want, on there, as long as you want, with the design fitting the stories. that would be a fun little project. it would also be a good way for someone reading your stuff, to be able to find out more about you and find more of your stories all in one URL.
im in the creative field myself, and as im sure you know, no-one wants to hire you unless they see your stuff. your own website would be a good way to have your own online portfolio for everyone to see, fans, potential employers, friends, etc.
wordpress.ORG would be a good place for you to find some really powerful CMS systems if you didn't want to worry about design so much too.
