As my efforts to write short stories begin to yield some drafts that are nearing finished, I have been gathering a list of places to submit them. Yesterday, I was very excited to discover Duotrope. This website is a free resource for writers, which has a searchable database of markets for fiction and poetry. By entering terms such as “High Fantasy” and “short story” I came up with a list of places to submit, most of which I had not found in my poking around on the web. I found Duotrope through the website of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, which is another very useful website in its own right. I have been keeping an eye on their blogs, as there are useful articles on both the writing and the business side of things.
