Short Fiction Matters Group

Gerald So is starting a message group that I think could be very helpful for writers searching for markets.

Here's what he has to say about it:

I attended a couple of panels at Bouchercon that mentioned the scarcity/difficulty finding quality markets for short fiction. After a chat with multi-genre author R.T. Lawton, I decided to create a discussion list to help writers, editors, and publishers spread market information, including anecdotes of specific markets' editorial taste.

This list will tap into members' experience sustaining and submitting to markets. Announcements of published stories will be allowed not for self-promotion, but to show what types of stories a market accepts.

I want to emphasize that this new list is *not* for fans. It's for writers, editors, and publishers looking to share market insight. It also covers all types of short fiction, not just crime/mystery.

If this no-nonsense approach sounds good to you, join Short Fiction Matters athttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/shortficmatters/


  1. As with all yahoo groups, I just go in circles when I try to join them.

  2. Yeah, their system is not great and has a lot of glitches, though I've gotten better with them so feel free to email me if you'd like to join this group.
