... And I've been contemplating this for months. I don't know much about publishing, I was focusing more on my writing (currently 56.000 words of my first novel - yaaay) and I said to myself I'd start learning more about publishing after I finish the first draft. I wrote a short story for a university contest in the spring of 2015 and it landed among top 5. I translated it to English and also a couple of English friends read it and said it was good. One of the things I learned about publishing so far is that it is easier to get a publisher for the first novel if your'e already published, that's why I decided to try and get this short story published in a magazine. I saw that some magazines have guidelines on how to submit, but I would like to know if you, more experienced colleagues, have any recommendations. Here are some details of my story: Word count: 5.404 words Title: 2015 (This sucks, but I'm terrible at titling a story. Need to reconsider, though) Genre: general fiction Summary: Arthur Conrad is a young but very respected man in literary community. Not long ago he wrote an essay comparing The Brave New World and 1984 with modern world. The essay is highly regarded by the literary theory community and it organizes a celebration in Albertina Museum in Vienna. Arthur is a guest of honour. Unfortunately no one in the community knows that Arthur is a psychopath. Nick, Arthur's friend is aware that Arthur's behaviour can sometimes be challenging, so he escorts him to the ceremony, hoping he can control Arthur's behaviour. Thank you.
