Resources Roundup – May’22

Posted by

If you’re wondering how come you haven’t seen a post in a month, it’s because I’ve been super-busy! Not just with work, but also some entertainment here and there.

Needless to say, I haven’t been writing much, but I have indeed broken my drought of six months and got an acceptance in Crannog, a print literary magazine run from Ireland! I’ve been submitting to them and getting consistently rejected for almost five years, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with getting published in this prestigious journal!

There are tons of markets you can still submit to until the 31st of May. You can find these at the resources below:
