Hey there! I'm 16 years old, but I have a huge passion for writing. I would love to get into the business of writing at an earlier age. I was wondering how one goes about getting started. I'd like to publish my book (when it's done) but I've heard it's easier to get a publisher to consider reading a manuscript after you've gotten your name out there (publishing in newspapers, magazines, est). I write fiction, mostly. Fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, and historical fiction. I'd love to get a short story of mine published. I was wondering if there were any creative writing magazines that feature stories of that genera. As well, are there any youth magazines. I'd like to try and get into the adult market, but even just shooting for a youth magazine would be awesome as well. Does anybody know of any magazines like that? I'm also in Canada, so if there are any region restricting magazines, I'd rather not chase a dead end. :3 Thanks.
