For your consideration: Duotrope

I am a big fan of Duotrope. If you’re like me, and just beginning to submit your work, it’s really an eye-opener.

Duotrope is no longer free, but there is a free trial period you might want to sign up for.  I think that even the occasional use is worth $5 a month. A year’s subscription/membership averages out to even less.

This is a little information from the site:

Duotrope Newsletter

About the Newsletter:
Paid subscribers of Duotrope can opt to receive an info-filled weekly newsletter that contains a list of new markets, markets that have closed or opened to submissions, upcoming themed deadlines, and more. In addition, we offer a monthly newsletter that anyone can opt-in to receive. The monthly edition includes a summary of the past month’s activity at Duotrope and highlights a few of our most popular new listings. Both editions of the newsletter are to the point and ad-free. We do not sell or share email addresses, and we never send spam. If you ever want to opt-out from our mailing list, you can do that painlessly here on this page. Instructions on how to unsubscribe are also provided in every issue sent.

To sign up for our newsletter: Register as a user and also select the option to receive the newsletter. Sign up now!

This is a clipping from the latest Duotrope newsletter, just a few places with upcoming themed issues. (links don’t show up very well in this theme, but clicking on the publication’s name should take you to a page with some basic information about the publication, and a link to it’s website)
