  1. Pat Brown says:

    The one thing I recommend is that everyone join this Yahoo group. I belong to it and in the last week there have been calls for stories and I know a few people who have sold stories through this site. There are also certain days authors can pitch their work to a variety of publishers who also belong to the list.

  2. Following Pat’s advice, I just joined this group, publishingtrove. They quickly sent me the following note, which confirms what Pat said.

    Reminder from: publishingtrove Yahoo! Group
    Title: Pitch Day
    Date: Wednesday December 1, 2010
    Time: All Day
    Repeats: This event repeats every week.
    Location: The Publishing Trove
    Notes: Each author can pitch one story on this day. It can be a work in progress or a finished story. The story you pitch must also have a brief synopsis written and put in the files section under pitches.

    Every Wednesday is pitch day. Other days specific publishers will put out calls for whatever they’re looking for at the time. It’s very productive and very businesslike — no idle chatter like you find on other Yahoo groups.
