following the breadcrumbs back to AW
I'd love to have your help--if you know of a market that accepts life story writing, please post it in this thread. I've been perusing some old threads in AW, and I found this site:

http://www.writingtoheal.com/pew/markets.html

It has quite an index you can browse to see which publication might be the best fit for your work.

On AW when I should be working
Website
www.allcotmedia.com
Found a few great markets this week...

Nerve.com (for controversial or racy topics)
www.uwmag.com (Underwired) for women's topics
and www.skirt.com (another women's personal essay market.)
Also women on writing (www.wowmag.com?) is holding a personal essay contest in conjunction with Skirt! I have to check all these links against my records and see if they are correct. I'll be back in a bit!

Most of these posts go back to 2007. I wonder how many changes there have been since?

FYI - This journal has some amazing memoirs in it... visit the site if only to read the journal, even if you don't submit to it. and the submission time is open again too. There is no submission fee and they give awards to the top 3 memoirs submitted for that time period. They gather submissions only twice a year.

Does anyone know if there are any Christian magazines that accept submissions?

Thanks for the lead. It would be great to be published by a publisher and not to have to self-publish and self-promote, even though I have enough experience to do so.

Visited your blog

Hi,
I visited your blog. Some of the pics at the first are not appearing for me. Just check to see if it's my computer or if there's really a problem.
Good luck.
