Starting Small

Pep Talks, Warnings & Screeds by George Singleton, with illustrations by Daniel Wallace

You may send your stories to the big New York glossy magazines that publish fiction regularly, then, after rejection upon rejection, work your way down to a semi-annual literary journal called something like Rusty Doorknob Review. Maybe you’ll begin with places like Rusty Doorknob Review, get some attention, then work your way up toward the glossies. Either way is fine. One of the great things about getting into little magazines is that there’s a chance your story will be picked up by one of the annual anthologies like New Stories from the South, The O. Henry Prize Stories, or The Best American Short Stories. Then you’re on your way.
