Markets For Writers

This is a page dedicated to sharing links for writing markets, mainly for short fiction. I’ve collected many places over the years that are open to submissions. Some of these have published my work, some I’m still trying to crack. There are online and print magazines listed. There are some places here open to novels and some open to both novels and short stories.

The sites listed are a mixture of pro and semi-pro. There are also a wide variety of submission guidelines – make sure that whenever you visit a new market and consider sending them your work that you read the submission guidelines carefully. The first way to get your work ignored is to not follow the specific guidelines of any given market. They won’t even bother to read your story.

Also, bear in mind that I’m a speculative fiction writer, so most of these links are to markets that prefer fantasy, sci-fi and horror. But not all of them, so take the time to have a look.

First off, here are some digest sites that list many more markets than I’ve put on this page. If you want a really broad range of potential sales avenues, spend some time at these sites:

Ralan.com
duotrope’s digest
Semiprozine Directory

There are more places like the three listed above, so have a search around the net for them.

Below are some direct links to markets – where possible I’ve linked directly to submission guidelines. Links in Bold are pro-paying markets (i.e. 5c/word or more).
