Markets For Writers

This week’s market is ‘The First Line Literary Journal‘. Here’s what they have to say about themselves:

‘The purpose of The First Line is to jump start the imagination–to help writers break through the block that is the blank page. Each issue contains short stories that stem from a common first line; it also provides a forum for discussing favorite first lines in literature. The First Line is an exercise in creativity for writers and a chance for readers to see how many different directions we can take when we start from the same place’.

Their latest first line is: ‘George pressed the call button and said, “Mrs. Whitfield, you have a visitor.”‘

Stories should be sent in by 1st November. There are no entry fees and they pay on publication. They prefer stories to be between 300-5000 words. Poetry and non-fiction are also accepted. For payment, guidelines, submission details etc, see the submission page.
