Anthologies

Writing for an anthology is a great way to break into publication and provides a viable clip for your portfolio. This market offers a host of possible topics in fiction, non-fiction and even poetry. An anthology is a collection of writings which can be written by various authors or can include selected writings by one author. Stories included in an anthology usually have a common theme or subject. Anthologies can also work as stepping stones to establish relationships with publishers and to eventually get published by a larger press. These relationships can open doors later when you are ready to submit a longer manuscript. Check Anthology News and Reviews for current markets.
