Finding good places to submit your poems, short stories, and essays can sometimes seem like more work than writing them in the first place. Fortunately, a few sites aggregate links to publications and other writing opportunities. Good places to begin include:
- Poets & Writers magazine hosts a submissions calendar as well as searchable listings for literary magazines, small presses, and contests, grants, and awards.
- NewPages.com features a searchable database of more than 1,400 literary outlets that's regularly updated. The site offers many other writerly resources, including classified listings of recent calls for manuscripts and writing contests.
