For all you writer’s out there seeking to be published in better-than-blog form, you will do well to study Paul Mandelbaum’s list of short story markets. Simply locate the downloadable word doc in the top right hand corner of the classes page of his eponymous website.
Using his list requires careful introspection. In which of his talent-tiers does your writing belong?
I. Too competitive for words
2. Ultra Competetive
3. Very, very competitive
4. Darn Competitive
5. Take up painting instead
OK, I made up the last one. But you get the idea. Each category (I didn’t list them all) comes with names and links to many publication outlets. But you gotta check it out on your own to get the goodies.
