Write for the Jugular

The 3: Weekly Market Update

In an effort to spread the love — not to mention the marketing possibilities — for writers, I’m starting a new weekly freebie. Every Wednesday, I’ll highlight three fiction markets that are always looking for fiction.

If you have any suggestions, know of a good publication to highlight, or want to promote your own journal, drop me a line and let me know. As always, you are welcome to submit to my own online publication, WriteHook Magazine anytime. In fact, please do — I’m still looking for submissions for my first edition.

The 3 for the Week of July 6, 2011:

  • The First Line: A quarterly online and print publication that actually pays money, The First Line provides the opening line and you run with it from there. The next two issues begin with the following first lines: “Edwin spotted them the moment he stepped off the train,” due August 1, 2011; and “It had been a long year,” due November 1, 2011.
  • Red Fez Publications: A monthly online publication that’s as open to anything as you will ever find.  They don’t like snail mail and they are serious about their guidelines, but if you don’t know where your story fits, try it here.
  • Jersey Devil Press: A monthly online magazine you don’t have to live in New Jersey to love, but it helps if you agree that Jersey Shore is the harbinger of the end of civilization as we know it.
Good luck, tell them WriteHook sent you, and remember — always write for the jugular!
