Duotrope Weekly Writer Markets List – 10/23/2012

Check out this week’s updated Writer Markets List from Duotrope.com. If this stuff interests you, then you need to head over to the Duotrope site to check out their amazing (and FREE) resource for writers. It’s invaluable to anyone looking to get their work published.  You can even sign up to get an expanded version of the list below emailed to you with new and updated information every week. It’s completely worth the two minutes it takes to sign up.

An anthology deadline I wish I had the time to try for is “New Orleans by Gaslight.” Writing something based in a steampunk free city of New Orleans during the Civil War just sounds like a who buttload of fun!
