Are you guys all ready for Halloween? It seems like it sneaks up on me every year! On to the Resource! 🙂
While looking for submission calls, I stumbled across an oldie but a goodie. The Classified ads on the Poets and Writers website. They have lots of open calls for various markets and listings for groups, etc. It’s a pretty good place to check out once in a while.
The Classifies page has some different categories to choose from: Manuscript Calls, Conferences, Contests, Publication, Retreats, Residencies, Resources, Services, and Workshops.
Once you make a selection, you can peruse the ads and choose options to pursue. The Contest section is my favorite. It’s got tons of resources to choose from. Check it out and let me know what you think.
The information is updated regularly, so I recommend you book mark it, or visit my Resources Page for the link at any time!

Fiction and Poetry Submission Resource
While perusing the ‘net, I found this awesome Fiction and Poetry Submission Resource.
(I’ve also added a link for this Resource on my Resources page.)
Haunted Waters Press (HWP) recommends reading one of their issues before submitting your work to see if your piece is a good fit for their publication. If you go HERE, you can Preview the Summer 2013 issue or purchase it in digital or print formats. If you’re going to preview the issue, make sure you click on the Preview link underneath the image of the cover. I clicked on the Sample link and my browser (Chrome) didn’t like it. But the Preview option worked perfectly. 🙂
From the HWP website:
We seek previously unpublished works unless otherwise stated in the call for submissions. We welcome both the profound and the quirky. We are open to most styles and genres of fiction including speculative, dark, experimental, and literary. We love flash fiction of any word count as long as it tells a complete story. We enjoy all forms of poetry including experimental, rhyming, free verse, and invented form. While we welcome deep, meaningful poetry, we also enjoy works that are witty, peculiar, or offbeat. Works of creative nonfiction should be real stories about real people, events, and ideas and should be eloquently written, thoughtful and compelling. As a general rule, we do not accept erotica. Profanity and violence, if used, must be integral to the story. We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
As noted above, HWP accepts Fiction and Poetry. Make sure you read the Submission Guidelines before submitting anything so you can be sure to follow their requirements.

New Writing Submission!
While perusing the ‘net this morning, I found a pretty cool, nonfiction, outlet for submissions! So, naturally, I wanted to share it with you-all. (I’m just nice like that.) 🙂
Creative Nonfiction accepts pieces of various sizes and topics, but it must be nonfiction. Your piece will undergo an in-depth fact-checking process before it is published, so make sure you tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but….
You can check out the various calls for submission, submit online or find out how to submit via snail mail on their website:
