Finding a publisher for your short story

(google image)

Seeking the all-powerful wizard, I climbed the mountain. I confronted the ferocious dragon and won. All so that I could ask my question, “Oh, great wizard who will publish my short story?”

Great wizards

The New York Centre for Independent Publishers

‘Calls for Submissions’ is listed on the side bar to the left of your screen under the heading Writers Resources.

Canadian literary magazine

Call for submissions are listed on the homepage. ‘Contests’ is listed on the side bar to the left of your screen.

There are three types of submissions…
Traditional:  the publisher pays you so they may publish your story
Contest:  In most cases, you pay an entry fee—usually around twenty dollars. If you win the contest, your story is published.
Contribution: No money changes hands. Your story is published and promoted.

One publisher may accept one, two, or three types of submissions.

A word of caution:  ensure that the publisher is legitimate by purchasing their publication and, or inspecting their web site.

I just found Duotrope. (Thanks Debra.) Duotrope is a search engine that lists publishers of poetry, flash fiction, short stories, novellas and novelettes. It's worth check out.
