Calls for Submissions

Literary journals and publishers put out calls for submissions when they are seeking new material.

If you have a completed story, essay, poem, or piece of creative nonfiction, these are good opportunities. A journal is more likely to publish what you submit if they are looking for it.

These are all my posts that list calls for submissions. They are arranged in descending order, with the most recent posts first. All are paying markets.

Even if the deadlines on the older calls have passed, it is worth looking at them as most journals will be open to submissions periodically. If you find a journal that is a good fit for your writing, you can submit during their next reading period.

Here are some good sites to check for submission calls.
