  1. You always have such great resources! Thank you for generously sharing them!

  2. St. Louis seems to be THE place. So many writer folks call that area home. Alas, I'm a Georgia girl, so that voids my eligibility for this one.

  3. Hi Tammy,
    You're welcome. I know nothing about payment, but it's worth sending an e-mail if you have something to submit.

  4. Hi Lisa,
    So sorry. I'll try to find something for a wider audience.
    Georgia has it's share of writers. My favorite short story writer is from Georgia--Mary Flannery O'Connor.
