So where do you start in your search for Anthologies and Contests seeking submissions?

Today, I list a good number of links below, to get you started. And please note that I in no way endorse any of these pages, it is simply a list of opportunities.

Warning

First, read this. It is cautionary advice for Science Fiction/Fantasy writers but it applies to all genres…

Sources of information

A wonderful source of all manner of information for Independent Authors is Indies Unlimited.

Also take a look at:-

A few others..

And you DID read the warnings at the link above (Contests and Awards)?

So get started!
