Last week I wrote a blog offering Tips on Writing and Selling Short Fiction: http://jacquelineseewald.blogspot.com
I said that my next blog would deal with finding markets for fiction, particularly short fiction. I’ll keep this short and sweet as is appropriate to the topic.
Here are some market resources that may be of help to you:
Novel and Short Story Writer's Market
(One valuable source of information. You can buy it or ask for it at the reference desk of your local library. It is published yearly.)
Check out these free online websites which are consistently updated:
(For mystery writers)
http://ralan.com/ (excellent current market listings for genre fiction particularly speculative)
http://darkmarkets.com/ (another up-to-date listing for speculative fiction, mainly horror)
http://writingcareer.com/ (posts new opportunities for freelance writers and is written daily)
http://sandraseamans.blogspot.com/ a great resource. Sandra blogs almost every day and offers the most current market listings as well as discussions on writing. Although her interest is geared toward mystery fiction, you will find many others listings of value here as well.
(click on “Literary Markets”-paying jobs, at top)
(a monthly calls column with much detailed info)
Another excellent listing by month that lists competitions, contests,
and submission calls letting you know details.
This and the previous listing come courtesy of Kevin Tipple who also
provides a fine blog for readers and writers:
Finally, if you are curious about my writing, here are some of my stories that are available as free reads:
Beyond the Bo Tree
(first story in this collection is a free read)
Litbreak is a good paying market for writers.
“Bacon Bits”-a humorous flash fiction crime story
Another paying market for writers.
Over My Dead Body!
"The Hotel Room Murder"-a locked room mystery with a modern twist
"Murder and Money"-police are aided by forensics in solving a homicide
The Gumshoe Review
"A Saint Valentine's Day Massacre"
Husband and wife detectives investigate separate cases that converge on a murder.
Note: I hope the market listings mentioned here prove helpful to you. Comments welcome!
