The Submission Grinder Newsletter

Postby steffenwolf » Fri Feb 12, 2016 1:46 pm

(copied from blog post for expediency sake, but I think this is of genuine interest to all you lovely writer people)

Since the start of 2016 I have been working hard on completing some major upgrades to the Submission Grinder site.

For those of you who may not be familiar with it, the Submission Grinder is a web tool for writers to find markets for their fiction: market listings, a search engine to find markets that fit your criteria, a submission tracker, and anonymized submission statistics to get an idea of what kind of response time can be expected from a particular market.

As part of the development work, in January the Grinder began sending out weekly Submission Grinder newsletters to subscribers which contained a list of recently added markets with links to the Grinder listing for each of those markets. The newsletter also includes updates on Submission Grinder feature development, and fundraising updates.

Starting next week, the newsletter is expanding to also include lists of markets that have recently opened or recently closed, making it easy to keep track of changes in market status, all delivered right to your inbox.

And, best of all, each of these lists is filtered based on user preferences for genre and pay rate, so you only hear about the kinds of markets you have personal interest in.

To sign up for the newsletter you don’t have to be a registered Grinder user, or even have experience with the site’s features. All you need to is sign up hereand enter your preferences for filtering.

There is also a separate newsletter to talk about Diabolical Plots’s publishing projects, which you can sign up for here.

I owe a considerable debt to The Grinder for helping me to identify potential markets of which I should otherwise have been unaware. Thank you David.

I've visited the grinder many times but never participated. This might prompt me to use it more.
Thanks steffenwolf.
