Sending short story submissions to reputable literary journals is the best way to get your short stories published--as short fiction authors like Kim Venkataraman know. But how should you make should story submissions? To whom should you submit your stories? What is the best way to get short stories published? If you’re writing stories or other short fictional prose and you want to learn more about how/where to submit work to editors for publication, Writer’s Relief can help (http://www.WritersRelief.com).

Writer’s Relief is an author’s submission service that has been helping creative writers for over twenty years (since 1994). A trusted name in the publishing industry, Writer’s Relief works with writers of poetry, full-length books, and short stories. We help writers make submissions, managing the entire submission process from A to Z. Preparing short story submissions isn’t easy: it requires a lot of time and effort. Most clients of Writer’s Relief, like Kim Venkataraman, would rather be writing than researching short story markets for submissions. That’s why they turn to Writer’s Relief for submission assistance.

There are three fundamental elements of a strong submission strategy for getting short stories published. First, you need a great short story (of course!); that means taking your time to edit, asking for feedback, and having your writing professionally proofread by proofreaders like those at Writer’s Relief. Second, you need to identify the short story publishers that are best suited to your unique short story submission. Third, you need a professional approach toward making submissions; that means creating a cover letter that keeps with publishing industry etiquette, formatting your writing to meet guidelines, and, finally, developing a schedule so that you submit regularly and in meaningful quantity.

Fiction writers like Kim Venkataraman will tell you that successful short story submissions are a number game. To get one acceptance, many writers must submit to about one hundred literary short story markets. Strong submissions require a lot of time, focus, and energy. But it is possible to be successful at making short fiction submissions to literary journals.
