      1. Liz, I just finish writing my forth book, a historical Time-slip love story novel set in 1690 and emailed to my editor. Now I can start reading you Short Story,

  1. Thank you, Mathew! I’d recommend that you start researching magazines that align well with the type of writing you do. You could start by signing up for a free Submittable account (https://www.submittable.com/). This will give you access to their database of submission calls. I also subscribe to their newsletter, which highlights submission calls on a weekly basis. Poets & Writers has a large database of magazines looking for submissions as well: https://www.pw.org/literary_magazines. The Six Questions For . . . blog is another good place to look: https://sixquestionsfor.blogspot.com/. I’ll also pass along the best advice I ever received about publication, which was to work on honing my craft first–which is exactly what I did!

  2. Liz, as a college prof I wrote for academic journals. After retirement, I skipped the literary-type writing (at which you excel) and went headlong into learning the craft of memoir., culminating with publishing Mennonite Daughter this past September.

    I applaud your success in the genre – brava!

    1. Thank you for the compliment, Marian! I went to grad school for fiction writing and was lucky enough to find a home in nontraditional higher education for a day job. The professional writing I do nowadays is for administration. Do you think you might try your hand at writing fiction?
