I’ve been a fan of fitness YouTubers for a while. Watching them pull big numbers inspires me to hit my own lifts, and I turn to their videos for technique and training advice.
But I haven’t looked to the YouTube writing scene until recently. Turns out, writing and reading YouTubers provide similar community, inspiration, and advice.
I decided I wanted to be part of that.
So… drumroll, please!

I think the most-asked question I get is, “Where do I submit my stuff?”
In a world where hooking an agent is somewhat akin to chasing down the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, publishing short stories is a great career (and ego) boost for a writer.
Duotrope currently lists more than 7,000 fiction, poetry, and nonfiction markets. And that does not include the plethora of writing contest and anthologies. There are so many opportunities to get published. Not knowing where to submit should never hold you back. [Click to Tweet]
So with that said, here is a list of regularly updated newsletters, lists, and databases to help you find homes for your work.
