Got a story kicking around that you've been meaning to submit? Of course you do.
Submit it to a mag (check out the Phoebe office for back journals if you're confused about where to start)
Submit it to a contest like Narrative Magazine's 2008 Fiction Contest or one of Glimmer Train's many monthly contests.
Don't know where to start? Sign up for the Creative Writing Opportunity listserv at Yahoo Groups and get a daily/weekly/monthly newsletter with current listings for contests, new journals needing submissons, and teaching positions. To sign up send an email to CRWROPPS-Bemail@example.com
And let us know when you publish that story so we can brag about your fabulousness.
