Archive-name: writing/resources/part1 Version: 2.8 Last-modifed: 10/95 Distribution-agent: firstname.lastname@example.org URL: http://bel.avonibp.co.uk/bricolage/resources/lounge/IWRG/index.html Internet Writer Resources v2.8 (10/95) ====================================== Please Note: As from January 1995, this is compiled/edited/maintained by Trevor Lawrence <email@example.com>. An HTML version is available at: htpp://bel.avonibp.co.uk/bricolage/resources/lounge/IWRG/index.html This document is primarily a list of magazines and various outlets accepting submissions by email, and branching out into Internet resources for the writer in general. Thanks to everyone who has responded. This list will be updated and maintained as long as *you* send in updates and improvements. See the bottom for information on distribution. Contents -------- (1) How to Submit (2) Electronic Submissions List (3) MCI Mail Magazine addresses (4) A Note to Writers (5) A Note to Editors (6) A Vision of the Future (7) The FAQ as the Future (8) WWW: Cyberspatial Presses (9) Other Electronic Resources (10) CRAM (11) Most Wanted List (12) Credits (13) Change History (14) Distribution (1) How to Submit ============= These addresses are provided through the courtesy of the publisher for the purpose of submitting queries or complete manuscripts. In all cases it is best to first *query* the publisher with a short description of your article idea or outline of an already-written article. In your query, you should address how your article fits in with the magazine's scope and focus. If you are querying multiple editors, do this for each. Make sure that you are familiar with their general magazine content enough to avoid wasting their time with irrelevent pieces or ones that have just recently been covered. If the entry states that the magazine has writer's guidelines, ask the editor for those first and adhere to them. Multiple submissions: in general, if you want to adhere to the utmost standards of politeness, avoid multiple simultaneous submissions. Particularly with email you generally receive a very rapid turnaround, so that the necessity of multiple submissions is decreased. If you absolutely must attempt simultaneous submissions, and one editor accepts an article, immediately email to all others that you are withdrawing the article. Explicitly noting the status of your submission as exclusive or simultaneous is a good idea. Do not carbon copy send a single article with no individual attention to the receiving editors. If you learned of the email address from this source, please tell the editor that. It will encourage the editor to maintain the capability, spur other editors to set up their own email addresses, and in turn help expand your own list of possible and alternative outlets for your writing. (2) Electronic Submissions List =========================== These magazines are published monthly unless otherwise noted. The `content' category describes the general content and requested writing. `compensation' describes the remuneration policies (if any). `rights' describes the rights to the material that are sold to the publisher. `contact' is the email address of the publisher, editor, or the general submission address. Note: the accuracy of this list is not guaranteed. In particular, the rights involved in a particular `sale' may be variable or negotiable. Make sure you understand the terms of the arrangement with the publisher. If you are interested in only certain kinds of contracts (such as retaining the copyright, which is usual the usual case but not guaranteed) be sure to tell the editor. - Alternate Hilarities Type: magazine of humor in speculative fiction Content: humorous pieces from all areas of the speculative fiction field, horror, science fiction and fantasy of all types. ``We're looking for stories ranging in length from 1 to 5k words.

In addition to the fast and reliable transmission, the editor may give more rapid turnaround to email inquiries. The opportunity for writer-editor communication and feedback is increased. The ability to find the specific outlet for a particular piece is improved. Also, in comparison to the telephone, people can read their mail whenever they want instead of at random interruptions. They can measure their responses carefully and archive them for future reference. For submissions, the intermediate step of rekeying typewritten text is largely eliminated. Please treat this capability of email submission with the utmost respect. If you abuse it you may jeopardize your own and fellow writer's future opportunities. An editor may decide capriciously that only junk comes in electronically, and ignore or remove the capability. Or, the editor may pay special attention to all the gems of articles that can be discovered and polished there. Always treat the editor with kind regard. If an article is rejected, simply resubmit elsewhere, make changes, or abandon it. The email address is *not* a hotline to flame or harass editors. Whenever you hear of a new address, please inform the author of this list. You do not gain anything by withholding it from your fellow writers. Everyone benefits when the list is thorough and complete. A comprehensive list of outlets encourages competition between them for your writing based on rights and remuneration policies, similar to an electronic Yellow Pages. Also, feel free to approach editors you know about the idea of setting up the service of internet email submission addresses. Tell them that their competitors have set up the system and that there are many potential benefits, perhaps ultimately eliciting improved reader satisfaction and interest.
