Let’s get the year started.
One of my goals for the year was to publish more, send more of my stories to be published by publications.
I have lots of stories and novels I’m working on and for those that are completed or near completion, it’s about time they found a home. Part of the writing life is publication. And what’s weird about it is that I’ve been publishing for most of my adult life in newspapers. However, I find the process of publishing fiction so much different and rewarding in a different way.
What I really like about this list is how it’s organized. It breaks down the list into three sections — literary, sci-fi/horror, and flash fiction.
None of the listings have deadlines, which is perfectly fine since I want to read them and get a feel for these magazines before submitting.
Who doesn’t love a competition? Well, I don’t but that’s not the point. It’s a chance to get work out there and depending on the competition, you may get some feedback.
This particular list international competitons as well.
Talking about international, a friend of mine posted this link on Facebook and I recently shared it.
The idea of an international lit journal running my work is intriguing. I wasn’t aware that there were journals outside of English speaking countries that were looking for work. I’m definitely looking into these magazines.
Every month my friend Glendaliz Camacho puts together writing opportunities that she keeps on her radar. Not only does it include publishing opportunities but also residencies and grant opportunities. Here’s the link.
Here is a list of forty, 4-0, journals to submit to with little intros to each. These are feminist journals (that doesn’t mean they don’t publish men as well, don’t get it twisted). I just saw this and will be reading through this at my leisure.
Hope this list is helpful to get you going! If there are any other journals, contests, residencies, etc that you see that or want to share, drop them off in the comments.
