Getting Published

Postby The Tromboner on Wed Jul 07, 2010 1:11 am

I know I'm not the only person here who writes. My question is, have any of us tried to get published? I've been writing a lot of little poems lately and gradually I've been cleaning them up. I've come to realize that I have a great few poems that I would like to consider submitting to somewhere. But I honestly am not sure where to start.

Has anyone tried? Any tips?

College literary magazine's the best place to start. 'Course I tried that once, submitting five stories even as I sat on the selection committee. All five got passed over. The lesson is: never try.

Or here's a more optimistic lesson: it's hard to find a person with good taste, but that doesn't mean you should ever give up. Don't let rejections stop you, no matter how many (or preferably how few) you get.

I did my community college's literary journal class three times, and each time I had a work of mine published. The first two I'm pretty embarrassed of (the very first one in particular), but the latest piece, a short work of Conan the Barbarian fanfiction, I'm rather fond of. Now I can say that I am a published author and take some actual pride in it!

That's a good place to start, college literary journals I mean. I'm really not sure beyond that, to be honest.

There are many fine websites that will take all manner of erotic fanfiction.

Erotic fanfiction is the greatest literary form.

There's a big book called the , in various iterations, that offers a huge listing of publishers, magazines, papers and so forth along with submission guidelines. I had a version from a few years back that I can't seem to find now, but it seemed like a pretty good resource for finding places to submit your writings. You should be able to find a more recent version at your local library.
