Realistic Markets for a New Short Story Writer
I'm a new writer, and I'm trying to publish short stories.
I managed to publish one short story in an anthology that advertised for stories on the Horror Tree. However, I've been sending stories out to genre magazines, and I haven't had any luck. Looking at Duotrope, I see that most of the fiction magazines have acceptance rates below 2%, and many of them are below 1%. With this in mind, it seems that getting published in these magazines is almost akin to winning the lottery.
So, I'm wondering if there are more realistic markets I could target in order to develop my name as a writer.
