Summer is clearly heating up here in the Northern hemisphere because a lot of publications want stories that are hot, hot, hot! (And for our Southern hemisphere friends, your hot stories can warm someone up on a cold night…)

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.

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.
