Tag Archives: Writer’s Markets
Despite recognizing the importance of diversity in publishing, trying to balance my own reading habits and supporting markets that promote diversity, I am a cis white male neophyte writer and sometimes stumble in discussing it. So, I will leave that to the good folks at FIYAH: Literary Magazine of Black Speculative Fiction: Public conversations about and around diversity […]
As we 2015 winds down, we received word that Tor.com is closing their slush pile. They will continue to solicit short fiction submissions, but no more unsolicited stuff for them. Fair enough as they are a very visible, yet exclusive market. It looks like they have not updated their submissions page yet, so if you […]
While I do get most of my market info from Duotrope, Ralan and DarkMarkets, there are a number of Facebook Groups out there. Here are three of my favourites: OPEN CALL: HORROR MARKETS (paying markets) OPEN CALL: FOR THE LOVE OF HORROR (non-paying markets) Calls for Submissions (Poetry, Fiction, Art) All are closed groups and you have to join in order to see listing information. They also have […]
If you are writing and submitting (or procrastinating about either), you need to be reading Richard Thomas’ Storyville column over at LitReactor. This time around, Richard writes about 10 places to submit your work this year, including a couple of new spots I missed on Duotrope. http://litreactor.com/columns/ten-places-to-send-your-fiction-in-2015 Read. Write. Submit. Repeat. Good luck!
This just popped up in my Twitter feed from @BeverlyBambury (formerly of ChiZine Publications, now a freelance publicist): In the next week or two I’ll have the first of a reoccurring column aggregating calls for submission. It will be by Selene MacLeod who also administers the successful Facebook group Calls for Submissions (Poetry, Fiction, Art). […]
As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I am seeing quite a bit of interest (in terms of traffic and click-throughs) in posts on markets, so I’m going to do micro-posts like this when I come across new resources. I have no interest in trying to maintain proper markets listings, especially when there are […]
Seeing quite a bit of action on the Horror Short Markets post and came across this summary of CanLit magazines that may come in handy for folks looking to submit their work: A Writer’s Guide to Canadian Literary Magazines & Journals Good luck!
If you’re anything like me (e.g. a neophyte writer without a clue how to sell a story), you may not know a whole lot about finding places to submit your work. Somewhere along the line, I received access to WritersMarket and figured “Great. Now I’ll find lots of places to submit to.” Well, now that […]
While I was researching the market for dark short stories last night (am I the only one that thinks that Writer’s Market is a waste of time?), I came across an interesting call for subs from Solarwyrm: Solarwyrm Press is calling for submissions for an anthology of stories involving precocious children. These are not supposed […]
