    Researching the Market

    Discussion in 'Traditional Publishing' started by montecarlo, Nov 18, 2020.

    How does one go about researching the right magazine or publisher for a short story? I’ve heard Writer’s Digest is a good source, but I bought their latest issue and there was some interesting columns, but no market insights to speak of.

    What you actually need is the annual Writer's Market books.

    Most small publishers will tell you what they are looking for on their submission pages . Another way , and is often suggested by publishers , is to read stuff they have published. The Submissions Grinder is a useful website to narrow things down . The last one is to submit your story .
