Storymart: 5 Pros and Cons for Writers

Georgina Jeffery


Lately I’ve been pursuing publication for some of my short stories, and I feel I’m settling into a good rhythm of submissions and rejections. My current goal, at its barest bones, is to be paid professionally for a piece of my work. A lofty one, I know. Anyone familiar with writing submissions knows just how low the acceptance rate is (I rather like this author’s breakdown of their submission stats, for context) and I know I’ll be waiting a long time for that elusive payout.

However, I came across an intriguing opportunity for short story writers recently. It’s called Storymart.

Storymart is a reader subscription service aimed at lovers of short stories.

  1. I was wondering, do they accept work from writers with children’s stories. I had posted to another blogger the other day that I had recieved information from an agent. She told me it was next to impossible to break into the publishing world without a very strong following or being famous. I got to say to read it in black and white it shook my world. I have decided that I’m just going to blog my material. I want children to enjoy what I have written that much. My blog is all about storytime and activities for pre-schoo age so, I guess I’ll use it.
