So, I've never submitted a short story to a magazine before, but I think I should start getting my feet wet. But I don't really know where to begin, so I'll just throw my questions out there: 1)How do rights to the story work? If a magazine features my story do I lose rights to it? 2)Should you look to get paid if you are just starting out, or do you need to have a little bit of credibility first? 3)How do you send a story? Do different magazines have different requirements? 4)Is there a good list of magazines to try and send to? 5)When should you consider trying to get a literary agent? That's all for now I think. Number 1 was my biggest concern. Thanks.
