Over the last few years I’ve built up a set of links that help me with my writing in terms of advice as well as markets. Given below are a few of my go-to sites that sit prettily bookmarked in my browser:
Resources for Markets:
This is a veritable treasure trove of paying markets for your poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Updated daily, we report on editors and publishers who are actively seeking submissions, pay standard or competitive rates, and do not charge reading fees.
This website was established in Melbourne, Australia and publishes news and resources for emerging and established writers. Check out one of their recent posts for competitions of June and July 2015.
An online database of literary journals of all stripes and hues. A worthy alternate for Duotrope which now requires a paid subscription.
Writer’s Relief Calls for Submissions and Contests
The classifieds section features a slew of listings for all kinds of writing, including competitions with and without entry fees.
This relatively new zine for writers lists markets in every issue, including for publishers and small presses.
