Short Story Submissions?

Hello...

One of the things on my To Do list is to gather up all those old short stories currently gathering dust on my hard disk, and send them off in directions that might actually earn me some money.

So: Competitions and magazines, I guess. And maybe anthologies. I'm about to start Googling, but I was wondering: Do any of you have some useful links? Ideally comprehensive lists of all the places you can submit short stories?

Thank you!

I have a list.
Will email it to you - if your email is on your site?

Something I need to do myself. Could also benefit from knowing where to send them!

I wish I did. I so need to get organized.

If they're commercial enough for the women's mags go to http://womagwriter.blogspot.com. The guidelines are posted in the links on the right of the page.

For competition listings check out Sally Quilford's competition calendar here: http://www.sallyquilford.co.uk/page25.htm

And if you're looking for more literary short story markets try www.duotrope.com

Hope that helps!
