Hi,

I'm terrified of starting the entire submission process all over again (I've started and stopped on numerous occasions--the heartache), but I'm really getting down to business and all I've had to go on is Writer's Market and magazines that have come and gone. Do you have any suggestions of good markets for breaking out? Examples of my work can be found at Penny Jar.

Thanks,
Victoria

Hi Victoria:

In every issue of Poets and Writers, there's a section in the back that's a "call for articles" or "call for manuscripts' or something like that. It lists a bunch of ads from journals looking for submissions, and many of them say they welcome submissions from new writers.

Good luck!

All the best,

Tracy
Ha ha, Thanks, Tracy. Would you believe I used to subscribe to that magazine and forgot all about it. Shows how long I've been out of the loop!

Hi Victoria:

They actually offer the call for articles for free online. See http://www.pw.org/classifieds

Mothering magazine publishes personal essays in every issue. They do have to have parenting as their focus : )
Plenty of parenting to focus on. Good idea, thanks!

Glad I found this discussion.. Have been planning on starting submissions and have had no clue where to begin.. Thnxs everyone for the helpful links.. Hopefully, some of these places will accept subs from non U.S writers :-)
Prerna: Welcome! I'm an American writer living in Japan (married to a Japanse man). Where are you based?

I just started a group a few weeks ago called Global Writers on this list, so feel free to join us if you like. Otherwise, looking forward to being connected on this list.

Thank you! I've been getting more focused on writing (having a chronic illness can make it hard to focus but I seem to have found the right meds now. Yay!) but I've been out of things for so long, I had no idea where to send stuff. This is soooo much help.
