Is the pen still mightier than the keystroke for anyone here?

Two questions, both writing related: 1) For those of you engaged in essay and fiction writing (not academic or research-heavy professional writing), are pen and paper still part of your creative process at all? What is your workflow like?; 2) Will publishing an essay on one's own personal, special interest website (with a potential reach of less than 100) first preclude ever having it accepted for publication (not just linked) in some form or another on an online magazine platform?

Where ought I submit my writings?

I've been composing several written works for some years now. They are unfinished, however, certain sections 'need to be published' according to a trustworthy friend who specializes in the field. Unfortunately, I've lost touch with her, and am clueless as how to attempt to publish whilst maintaining an appropriate degree of protection and control of my work. [more inside]

Political Writing Outlets

Writing political commentary. I have a friend (no, really) who has a lot of talent for writing political opinion pieces. He's had letters published in Time and in the International Herald Tribune. Now he'd like to start submitting some articles he has written, but he doesn't know where to send them. He's looking for small publications where he could get started, and he isn't necessarily looking to make money from this. In terms of slant, he describes himself as a civil libertarian, free-trader, legislative minimalist when it comes to issues of morality and mores, pro-redistributive lefty who veers right on issues of unnecessary regulation.

Any ideas on where he might find his niche? Much appreciated!
