I want to write for interesting online magazines

I am looking for online magazines to submit art/literature/experimental/fun articles to. I think 'The Believer' magazine is a good example of the type I crave. UK based would be best, but not completely necessary.

Any ideas?

Good luck getting anything into The Believer, they are being pounded with submissions and you are a lot more likely to hear back if you are agented.

Provided your looking to develop yourself as a writer and get exposure - start a blog. Own your own writing. Once you start to build up a rhythm and a (small) following you can shop yourself around to bigger publications (print or otherwise). They will probably respond more positively to you cold-contacting them then AND you'll be building up an archive of your writing rather than scattering it in the wind.

Response by poster: I have written a blog for some time and feel like to time has come to dip my toes in the main stream.

I discovered Triple Canopy through a past Mefi post, great stuff.

Any other ideas?

Best answer: Not quite on the same level as The Believer, but a friend of mine runs an up-and-coming UK free magazine that’s beginning to get a bit of coverage and attention – Mustard. He might be interested in articles, though it leans towards humour. Probably not any money in it though.

(Mustard is more of a print thing though, but so is The Believer)

Derek Powazek's Fray quarterly magazine takes submissions of true stories and original art centered around themes. The next issue is currently taking submission for the "Geek" theme.

Best answer: Here is a long list of literary journals (it's the directory of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses). Start browsing!
