Okay first off I would like to ask if anyone knows of magazines and newspapers in America (even just in California is fine as well) that accept Science fiction short stories. I already know that The Writer's Market is a good resource but I'm a little short on money due to the fact that I am one of those broke college students, and to further my dilemma a broke art student you hear so much about, and will pick it up as soon as I have some spare change, but I was hoping some of you can give a few suggestions. Secondly, when submitting a short story is it similar to submitting a novel: Cover letter/Query, synopsis. Do you include the complete short story with it or a small sample? thirdly, in the query is it the same set up: opening hook, short synopsis,bio? Finally: when it comes to the lay out of your short story. do you submit it like you would a manuscript? # for scene breaks underlining for italics and such. Any other info would be amazing. thank you.
