ACCEPTED!

FINALLY - after MANY rejections, my poor battered tale "Parasite: A Love Story" has been accepted by fait accomplit magazine (the Comparative Literature magazine for the University of Alberta). There's no money, but it's a publication credit, I'm invited to the release party, and there will be readings and conversations with other writers, so THAT'S bound to be awesome.

Plus, I get a copy! Hurray!

  1. Congratulations on the publication!

    I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I'm looking for some magazines to publish some of my short stories in. (I know of Cicada, which is how I first found you.)

    Do you have any recommendations or ways I can find short-story magazines?

    I hate to ask you to take time out of your busy schedule, but I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    Thank you.

  2. No problem!

    I found out about Cicada through an excellent reference guide called "The 2005 Novel and Short Story Writer's Market." That series is incredibly useful - they display lists of publishers, literary magazines, whether they pay, whether they accept newcomers, and links to their websites and submission guidelines.

    More than likely your public library has a copy of it.

    As for Fait Accomplit, I found out about it because they posted flyers around the University.
