Whether you have some pieces waiting to send out or are looking for a publication with a theme to spark a story, I’ve rounded up places eager for your writing. We have a few new additions to the list. They’ve been marked with ** to help you find them!

Make sure to read both submission guidelines and terms and conditions closely. Many publications have specific guidelines or requirements for stories along with things like formatting, information from you, and more. While reading the terms and conditions can seem tedious, it’s important to understand what a publication is going to do with your work. Not reading these guidelines can mean your work is automatically rejected because you didn’t follow the rules — no matter how great the piece is.

    “The New Lesbian Pulp Anthology” – It seems to me that this topic should arouse the greatest interest.
