Writers love to write because they need to tell stories, get words out of their heads, or feel the need to change the world. That is fine and dandy, but if you want to change the world, or at the very least share some of those stories, how do you go about doing that? A blog is certainly one way, but only goes as far as your number of followers or your skill at promoting it.
So what else? How about getting your words into magazines and contests. That works too! And I have come across a few new magazines that are accepting submissions at the moment for those of you with a plethora of stories that you need/want to share. I just might have to add these to my Place to Submit Your Work Page for further reference too. Let’s see if this inspires me as much as my last round-up of contests to enter.
