Market Research - Duotrope  Reply with quote  

Here's a site I've recently discovered for researching markets/managing submissions for short stories and poetry and junk: http://www.duotrope.com/index.aspx

Interesting data these folks collect, and whatnot.

Hey, congrats on your publication in Shroud! Very Happy

I'm finding Duotrope really helpful, both for finding appropriate magazine/short story markets and then for tracking submissions*. They use the data you enter in their stats for a particular market (you remain anonymous, with, I believe, the exception being if you allow them to publish to their subscribers when you've had a piece accepted somewhere), which I think is pretty cool. Plus, it's a free service!

*There are other sites that do this as well, such as http://querytracker.net/ , for submissions to agents and publishers.
