Poetry Submissions

Today's big project was submitting poetry.  I sent batches to Outshine, Strange Horizons, Polu Texni, Open Magazine, Writing Shift, Paper Crow, Expanded Horizons, Not One Of Us, Onirismes, OG's Speculative Fiction, Bete Noire, Big Pulp, Unspoken Water, and Jerseyworks.  Some of those are places I've never sold anything to, so if they buy anything, that would apply toward my goal of having poetry published in three new markets.

I used Duotrope's Digest as a market search for some of these. This is a crowdfunded market guide; current need for donations is Medium (for the March goal) or High (for the 2011 goal).

Crowdfunding Trial Run: Editorial Cartoons

wbm is doing a trial run of crowdfunded editorial cartoons.  The idea is to let people talk (or rant) about interesting topics, similar to the OpinioNation strip.  At this stage, participation is free, in exchange for your feedback on the results and crowdfunding concept.

Do you have a worthy cause that you like to support?  Are you peeved about a news article you read recently?  Come up with a rough idea for an editorial strip (up to 4 panels) and send it to wbm.
