Are you ready to take the next step? We know you're serious about writing and we are too. For our brave writers who are looking to get their start in the world of professional publishing, we will be gathering up a list with a handful of publications that are accepting submissions each month.

Since we're in the eleventh hour of the month, we're listing publication with deadlines in the next few weeks.

There are countless literary journals and anthologies accepting submissions out there, but a good number of them charge a reading fee. However, since a good many of us are early in our writing careers and often do not have the funds for paying submission fees, we will only list publications that do not charge a reading fee.

We list the name of the journal, the submission deadline, what type of literature they're looking for, and if they are a paying market or not. We encourage going to each website individually to read submission guidelines.

:bulletblue: Publishing Opportunities :bulletblue:

Name of journal: Broken Eye Books
Deadline: June 30th
Media: Fiction
Market: Paying

Name of journal: Organic Lifestyles Magazine
Deadline: Rolling basis
Media: Articles
Market: Paying
Website: www.organiclifestylemagazine.c…

Name of journal: Bare Fiction
Deadline: June 5th
Media: Fiction, poetry, theater
Market: Non-paying

:? What does no simultaneous submissions mean? This journal mentions that they do not accept simultaneous submissions; this means that they are asking you to submit your work only to them and to no one else until they've given you a response.

Name of journal: Track//Four
Deadline: June 6th
Media: Poetry
Market: Non-paying

:bulletred: Our Advice!

While it's definitely tempting to only submit to journals that pay their contributors, it's a slow and tedious process to develop a library of publications that can require making literally hundreds of submissions. We highly recommend submitting to both journals that pay and those that don't, for getting your name out there and having a publication to list on your resume or CV is always worth something.

You may have several pieces published with non-paying journals and though you won't see the money then, there's always the very high possibility that having those publications on your resume will be a key thing discussed at that job interview you're waiting for, or something to highlight in that scholarship application you're working on.

Happy writing and submit with confidence!

Peace-In-Violence Featured By Owner Edited Jul 21, 2019  Student Traditional Artist

So my dastardly brother has decided to make himself of benefit to society by starting a blog wherein he critiques books. He'll mostly focus on self-published authors and beginners rather than doing the works of traditions basically don't expect him to run around talking smack about George. R. R Martin. Pfft, chicken. Anyway, if you have something that you want critiqued, go ahead and shoot me a note. I'll get it to him. This will be public and might get a little brutal depending on how much he finds, but he won't be mean or derogative and he's actively trying to help. Last thing to know is that these crits won't be book long or even entire chapters worth, he'll pick one or more sections of varying length, edit them and upload.

That should be everything. Feel free to ask questions.
Fare thee well my future friends.

P.S He's been critiquing for several years now, has written several books and is widely read so he is somewhat experienced
