Hello LitReactor community,
I want to try my luck in the publishing world. I wrote Itch for the 'Scare Us' contest, and I think I'd like to submit it elsewhere for *money.* Any suggestions as to what types of publications might be interested?
Well duotrope will be your best friend when it comes to submitting to any market for any genre.
Writing for money? What manner of sorcery is this?
Duotrope is the leader, also try http://darkmarkets.com/
There's also: http://ralan.com/
amazing! thanks guys!
No , thank you for the thread. Learning = WINNING!!!
Damn it, Gary. Ralan was my tip.
Here is a helpful guide to Duotrope from Richard Thomas: http://litreactor.com/columns/storyville-research-and-duotrope
I'm an asshole.
Wow, Duotrope is amazing.
Duotrope is great. It's much easier to navigate than The Writer's Market. I use Duotrope more often than not, despite having a subscription to The Writer's Market Online.

Short Story and Creative Writing Contests
ps...i haven't gotten many suggestions for ways to improve my short story in the Scare Us competition..so if anyone wants to check it out and give me some feedback...
Ispieller, I'll look at yours if you look at mine... Couldn't help myself, I had to throw that in there! I want to submit my story too, so like you, I need feedback.
I'm a bit braindead tonight after working on my story today and giving some fairly meaty feedback on another challenge story, but I promise you I'll get to yours tomorrow.
CEMETERY DANCE and DARK DISCOVERIES are both great. They pay solid rates in a timely manner, are widely distributed in print, and both have regularly published work from new writers as well as old pros. And I've been hearing good things about STRANGE AEONS too, though I think they're gunning for a more specific Lovecraftian bent. BLACK STATIC has done some great stuff too.
And if you want my short list of horror, try Shroud, Shimmer, Shock Totem, One Buck Horror, Apex, Clarkesworld, F&SF, Lamplight and LORE.
