Hive authors: help me publish a sci-fi story!
posted by Salvor Hardin to Writing & Language (26 answers total) 23 users marked this as a favorite
I've written a science fiction short story (hard sci-fi). I've been told that it's pretty good, so I was thinking about trying to publish it in a periodical of some kind for the fun of it. It's a little over 5000 words. I've never done this before, and I don't read sci-fi magazines very often, so I'm looking for the following:
Suggestions on where to send in the story. How many places?
Warnings, things I should know beforehand or avoid. I'm clueless about copyright, etc.
Estimates of whether or not I can get any money from this. It'd be fine if I didn't, but I'd like to know going in.
Any other advice.
