Women Who Eat

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie. ~Jim Davis

I picked up this book for obvious reasons...I like to eat, cook and read about food. It also brought to mind the idea that you really can write about anything and find a market for it. Writing for anthologies is a good way to get your name out there, have more than yourself promoting it (every other writer in the book is most likely promoting it) and find other writers with similar interests. A quick search on anthologies will bring up thousands of websites. Writer's Market, Winning Writers, and Duotrope are also good places to search. The pay may not be the greatest, some anthologies might "pay" only in copies but if you're looking for publishing credits it may be a good first step and a confidence booster.
Lovingly,
The Writing Nag
