Hey everyone! So in the long wait, I was thinking of sprucing up my story that passed muster last year and see if I can find a place to submit it. I know there are tools floating around out there such as Duotrope, but I thought I had seen a similar FREE tool floating around on these forums... am I mistaken? 

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them! Not looking to make money, just get published/credits to hopefully one day become an actual writer!

I'm open to paid services too, but money is tight right now because my wife and I are starting to look for our first home. :P

Submission Grinder is a similar tool to Duotrope, and it’s free.  That being said, I think Duotrope is far superior and is kept current and updated more often.  Plus, it’s only five bucks, which won’t break the bank for anyone.  Here’s a link to the Grinder, though, just so you have it:" rel="nofollow -

Have fun!

Just to keep submissions front of mind, on Twitter I mostly follow writers and places that post submission opportunities. Also made one of my "big 4" phone apps the Submittable app (though that was $5.99, I think?) for the same reason (so when I need to kill time and just have my phone, I can just either zone out on scrolling submission opportunities instead of other stuff) LOL It does sound like Duotrope is good for when you are ready full-on submitting mode (not sure I'm there yet!)

Thanks everyone! I mean yeah $50 a year wouldn't break the bank, or just $5 for a few months in order to find a home for a short story or three, I didn't even look at how much Duotrope cost, I just saw "fee" and thought "writer" and in my experience... like we make $0 anyways so it's always rough to cough up anything in my mind. I'm not even trying to get paid, just get publication since it's a life goal that I think is obtainable.

I do not believe that calling your agent a tool is the way to go.
