Literary Short Story Markets

On Saturday I went to the annual Writers’ Toolkit run by Writing West Midlands.
One of the sessions was ‘The World of Short Stories’. On the panel were Louise Palfreyman and Lisa Blower.
Louise and Lisa both write what I would describe as ‘literary’ short stories and they gave a long list of journals worth targeting. Among them was Popshot Magazine, which I mentioned in my last post plus a range of others including:
The Best British Short Stories (annual anthology)
The Paris Review
Under the Radar
Short Story Sunday
Lisa and Louise also mentioned the benefits of entering competitions and, when asked about the mechanics of short story writing, gave this wonderful quote from Raymond Carver, “Get in. Get out. Don’t Linger”.
My writing veers more towards the commercial than literary but a virtual friend of mine, Tracy Fells, blogs with a more literary leaning – worth a look!
