Markets
« on: July 11, 2005, 11:55:32 AM »
I figured  there should be a sticky forum listing market opportunities you wouldn't normally find without research. So I'm starting one.

Here's one I found out about this morning, looks like a good opportunity a lot of us could use.

SF Clichés

Good thread idea.  I applaud it.

The SF Clichés market is closed.  The deadline was November 1, 2005.

Let me just recommend www.ralan.com and www.storypilot.com as good places to look for spec-fic markets.

I completely forgot this was here. If you haven't already heard from me about it, we've changed our submission guidelines at Mirrorstone. If you write fantasy for children or young adults, check out the new guidelines:

Mirrorstone Books is looking for potential authors to submit series ideas for a new D&D-based series for 8-12 year olds. For your reference, look at Knights of the Silver Dragon, our current D&D-based series. I'm wanting something beyond the basic quest formula--I'm looking for something that stands out in the middle grade area of the bookstore.

To start, you would just need to send me a concept paragraph via mail to

Submissions Editor
Mirrorstone Books
P.O. Box 707
Renton, WA 98057-0707

We’ll be in touch if we want more. This would be work-for-hire, since it’s shared-world D&D.

EUOL, Charisa, MsFish, and others who would be in contact with other writers who might be interested, please pass this along.

My first impulse was to be snarky ( the last post was in 2005?) but this seriously was a good idea. Anyone found anything recently?
You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.

Man, I wish this idea had stuck. I could use a few hints on places to submit.
I like basketball, hanging out with my friends, reading, slamming a garbage can into a pimp or two with magical heavenly powers. You know, teenager stuff.

I was going to start a new thread, but hey, why not use this one?

The Last Man Anthology - accepting submissions until June 31.

They're not exactly paying huge money, only $15 or a contributor's copy, but I notice that they promise a one-to-two page critique of any submission that they pass on. I've also heard that they're looking for more stories from women writers.
