Getting your work out there and published–whether in print or online–is a hugely important step for a writer. It’s daunting and competitive, but the validation and knowing people are reading your work is hugely rewarding. It’s also an essential step in building a track record and career as a writer.
Submittable is a growing resource for submitting work–a portal for submissions, but also has a growing list of opportunities.
