Lessons Learned from Market Research

I’ve just updated our Directory of Paying Short Story Markets. And in rechecking all those magazine and journal Web sites and submission guidelines in the process, I’ve learned a few things:

1) Although it previously accepted submissions year-round, Indiana Review will be on a reading hiatus beginning May 1, lasting until the end of September.

2) Meridian, the semiannual literary journal from the University of Virginia, can no longer pay all its authors. For details, click here.

3) The Southern Review has a new Book Review Editor.

The Directory, by the way, now includes 135 markets. Check out the free preview (with sample market listings) here.
