LOOKING FOR places to submit your work (other than CL)? Googling individual magazine and book publishers, not to mention literary agents, can be time consuming. If you are looking for a more efficient way to search try these resources:
1. Submittable — the submission service many magazines and book publishers use (including CL), also has services for individual writers. You can create a free account and have access to a searchable database of publishers. The home page for writers lists publications by deadline; but you can search by other criteria. You can sign up for its e-newsletter as well.
2. Duotrope — there is an annual subscription fee for this service, but it’s quite reasonable and most English-language magazine and book publishers across the globe are in Duotrope’s database. It also has a growing list of agents. You can search a publisher by genre, subgenre, pay range, word count, acceptance rate — the list is very detailed. Weekly newsletters let you know about submission deadlines and themes.
3. Magazines Canada — the industry association, has a membership directory, which includes literary titles, on its website.
4. Authors Publish — this magazine and site will try to sell you all sorts of how-to-get-published guides, but it does have a good free e-newsletter that often lists new literary magazines and submission deadlines.
