For: Writers who want to submit work for publication consideration
By: Brian Scott, former Founder and Editor-in-Chief of FreelanceWriting.com
This isn’t a blog in the traditional sense in that there aren’t any articles to be read. This is more of a news feed of paid publication opportunities. Yes, paid. Sometimes only token payments, but paid. Although this site aggregates a lot of different calls of submissions (poetry, literary agents, small press looking for novels and novellas) because of the larger publication world, it is best for finding avenues to submit short stories, with speculative and literary being the top genre markets. Again, this is not a skew of the website, but rather because of how the writing market is.
I use this website regularly and it has so many positives. Completely free to the users. It has some ads, but they are completely unobtrusive. It catches a lot of markets I wouldn’t be privy to on my own, such as one-time or irregular publishing opportunities, such as anthologies or chapbook contests.
My only negative, which is very tiny, is that because this website focuses on calls for submissions that have deadlines, it misses paid opportunities from publications that have all-year open submission periods. So, it’s good for you as a writer submitting stories not to rely solely on this source, although it is a very great source of publishing opportunities.
