A Quick Note

Just wanted to let you guys know I’m down with the flu, right now. On the mend, but still not anything like functional.

In the meantime, just in case you didn’t realize these resources are out there, let me direct your attention to these two writing-related and markets-listing sites that can save you hours of chasing around on the Web:

Duotrope’s Digest
“a free writers’ resource listing over 2750 current Fiction and Poetry publications. Use this page to search for markets that may make a fine home for the piece you just polished. Use the menus at the top and right to explore the rest of the free services we offer writers and editors, including a free online submissions tracker for registered users.”

“This web site is about writing, mine and yours. In 1994 it started as an exercise for myself, to promote my work and find writing speculative and humorous fiction writing links and markets for my work on this new-fangeled Internet thing, because they weren’t to be found. As it got bigger, I decided to share what I had with other writers who, like myself, might be in a place where finding markets was not that easy. Pretty soon these other writers started helping me right back, by pointing out new markets and changes in listed ones. That two-way interaction is still going on today. There are other e-places to find markets now, but thanks to you, this is still one of the most up-to-date.”

Resources like this are often found through word of mouth, and it’s a privilege to get to point new writers in helpful directions. I’ve used both of these sites, especially for fiction and poetry markets, and found valuable, up-to-date information. When I can, I support the tremendous amount of work they do, via paypal.

Hopefully, you’ll find them as helpful and worthwhile, in pursuit of your own markets.
