The Grinder

Searching for the right market for your story can be time-consuming and costly. Thankfully, the team at Diabolical Plots has made the process easy and free. They created The Grinder, which is a submission tracker and market database for writers.

Writers do not have to register to search the database for free, which offers a plethora of markets to scan through. Search features allow you to eliminate closed or fee-charging markets from the results, and enable you to choose parameters such as: electronic or postal submission, pay range, story type or length, etc. Choosing from a list generated by your criteria makes the process more efficient. Individual market pages provide an overview of the guidelines and link to the external website for detailed information.

While you’re on The Grinder, you may want to visit Diabolical Plots, which is a Sci-fi/Fantasy zine. They present interviews and reviews related to the genre in all its forms, as well as the craft of writing.
