Either of those things is rude, and in combination downright uncivilized.

And Pepper: DIAGRAM and elimae could be on your shortlist as well. Also I've recently really liked Box of Jars.

I completely forgot about DIAGRAM, but you're right it should be on there. I don't read elimae very often (it's not my style) but it's definitely a massive magazine.

And can we get back on the subject of how much Narrative Magazine sucks? Charging artists 20$ to submit, posting the content for free, getting huge grants from the government, selling subscriber emails, and still asking for donations. None of those things on their own (aside from selling subscriber emails) are that bad, but all together they're awful.

I wish I had the time to rant. At least one of the top searches for Narrative Magazine is this, which always makes me happy, but I think he went a little too soft on them.

Anyways, I think this topic brings up a good point. If people are ready to submit their work they should have a pretty decent idea already formed on where they'd like that to be. If you haven't been reading lit. mags you better start - I wouldn't advise people send their work to random magazines without first checking if the mag publishes work similar to your style.

I'd also recommend starting with magazines that highlight local writers - you don't necessarily need to fit their style if you're from the area, and you can meet some great people that way. I have a lot of great working relations with the magazines around Milwaukee, and I'd take that over automatic rejection letters any day.

This is a pretty comprehensive list of literary magazines

I don't suppose they receive Asian submissions?

Ugh. I better hunt some publishers on my side of the globe.

Squint: if the magazine doesn't pay and if they take submissions online, I bet they won't care where in the world you're from. A lot of online magazines seem to have either an American or a British sensibility, but I'm sure they would welcome international writers with good work.

I racked up a huge list of favorites on duotrope while it was still free, and I'm considering paying the 5 bucks for a month long subscription so I can get at my list again (and post it somewhere for reference - here, maybe, or on my blog). Stay tuned.

The literary magazine listing over at P&W is decent, though I think it's skewed towards print over online mags.

+1. But I think that the bootcamp should be more private than the mermbers only subsections, because, well, it is a submissions bootcamp.

Update. Shaun and I are currently trying to come up with something that would function as a submission bootcamp and a publishing group hopefully on this site. It's starting to take shape.

I need to work out people who are interested first. I've jotted down a list of people here who have physically expressed interest from this thread. If you want to be added then post here (with the genre(s) you write mostly). Equally if you don't want to be in the group then do the same.

*Remember* this should be for people who are either already at a stage where they are submitting regularly or need that extra push to; the latter criteria means you either should have work, or will be prepared to have work written to an acceptable standard. Though other members can read your work, and give informal critiques, the group shouldn't be focused mainly on improvement.

This group is for motivation and information above all else. If you guys have any questions or suggestions then feel free to post. I also want to point out that I don't want people to imagine that I'm going to run the group; I want it to be a collaborative endeavour. At the moment it just needs to be set up and I'm the one giving it that push.

*Interested*

Working on it now, folks. Spacepirate just needs to confirm that he can access the forum before I start mass adding people.
