Sorry About the Spam

To any of you on the SFNano's Yahoo list, I'm sorry, I know it's a lot of email, but I really, really need one of us to get published. This is by no means a complete listing of all the resources I have, it's just the ones whose contest deadlines or reading periods are open or opening soon.

C'mon. Don't let me be the only one in a submission frenzy. You've all got stuff sitting around gathering silverfish. Time to revisit it and send it out the door!

Sounds good to me. I've been floating over my poetry and around my Poet's market, but haven't sent anything out in the last few weeks. I better get on it.

Oh, chica - we've GOT to get together. The place from which I'm getting all these markets - I didn't even LOOK at the markets for poetry, and I think they outnumber the ones for fiction!

I should activate my writersmarket.com from lst year's WM before this year's arrives, huh?

Had an interesting tarot reading a coupla weeks ago. I asked about my love life and got my writing life answered. Which is odd in several ways.

I enjoyed the posts, numerous as they were. I'm not at the submittal stage, but it's nice to see the variety of options that exist, for my future reference. Would you be willing to compile the info onto a single web page for easier reference?

I think that I can certainly do that. Right now, I'm keeping all of my writing-related tools at www.flamingbottom.com, and there are precious few of them, mostly because between a day job, writing, podcasting and a family, I'm a little pinched for time. Obviously, I need to do more incredibly hard drugs.

The source for all these contests, etc., was Poets & Writers' Magazine, which comes out semi-monthly. The entire back third of the magazine is nothing but contests etc.

The difficulty is that I can only judge the markets that are appropriate for my own work. Many of my markets wouldn't be appropriate for someone writing, say, fantasy or personal essays or ribald satire.

I'm thinking of just putting a link to the many different resources I've been using on the website.

Either way, it'll have to wait at least two months for a fresh batch. But thanks for the suggestion. If you have any more suggestions for tools, etc., to put on Flaming Bottom, I'd be happy to do it. I always meant it as a place to share.
