Below is a list of 101 no fee, literary magazines/journals that have a fast turnaround time (most average a month or less) according to Duotrope. I’ve also researched and added some others to the list, based on suggestions from experienced writers. The list is long, so I wasn’t able to provide additional details or links for all of them. Those that I’ve featured on my blog previously are detailed below, followed by a list of all the rest.

Read the guidelines carefully. Some may have changed whether or not they charge submission fees since I compiled the list. Some may be temporarily closed to submissions.

Key editing secrets to write a compelling story: Tempe library workshop

Fantastic opportunity to polish your prose! Don’t miss this workshop:

Ann Narcisian Videan

Ann Videan Here I am presenting last time at the Tempe Public Library… same topic, but I’ve added a few tips.

As an editor, I consistently fix a handful of writing issues as I read through manuscripts.

As a writer, if you knew about these issues, you could avoid them before your editor even reached for a red pen. You could create a much more vibrant manuscript to submit to a potential publisher… one that compels your reader deep into your story or message.

Allow me to give you the inside scoop at a free workshop, #2 in my series of four writing presentations: “Key Editing Secrets To Write A Compelling Story.”

Sat., Sept. 17, 2016
10 a.m.–12 p.m.

Tempe Public Library
Meeting Room A

Can’t wait to see you there!
