If you are on Facebook, one of the best things for me has been joining various “submission opportunity” groups. I bet I’m on a half dozen or so. Facebook has a ‘save’ option, so if a post comes up in my feed, I can quickly save it and review it at a more convenient time (versus having to investigate it the moment I see it, which is rarely the ideal time). You can even create a collection for your saves, so you could save it right to a Submission Opps collection. 

But many of these submission opportunities are only open for a limited time, and I’ve definitely had situations (as recently as last night!) where I waited too long to review a saved submission opportunity, and the deadline had passed. :)

What do you type in to search for the submission opportunities? Is it just submission opportunities or short story submission opportunities, or something else entirely? I recently discovered groups on facebook which I've been enjoying hahaha - Excited to try out this new avenue as well. Smile

That was unexpected and for once really did make me laugh out loud.


The "race to rejection" and the methods of methodically sending them to publishers, reminded me of Jo in Little Women. And of course Louisa eventually hit paydirt. Thank you all so much for sharing.
