We particularly welcome the work of new and emerging writers. In the recent Best American Short Stories, of the top "100 distinguished short stories," six appeared in Glimmer Train Stories, second only to the New Yorker. We are pleased to say that, of those six, two were those authors' first stories accepted for publication.
Print magazines taking online submissions
Here is our very popular list of magazines that are print magazines taking online submissions. A few years ago this was a very big deal, and it still is. Now most large and even commercial magazines take online submissions. At one time this was not the case.
Either way this list will give you an avenue to publish your writing in a print magazine. Some of our new and emerging magazines are of course much easier to publish your work in than the older more well-established magazines. If you want to see your work in print, this list if for you. We believe it will give you the best chance of seeing this happen.
We have been listing these print magazines taking online submissions for over 10 years. Some of these listings are brand new, others may be out of date. If you see a listing that needs to be updated, please leave us a comment. We do take action.
Good luck publishing your work.
