Upcoming Submission Deadlines

I have been keeping up with a ‘submit at least one thing a week to a magazine/contest/etc’ for the past month and it has really been a very unique learning experience. I have a running list of magazines/contests/etc that I think fit my writing style, and I am updating it constantly. I think that submitting your writing is an important step in the whole writing process. So I am going to list a few upcoming contests. Most of these are going to be for more of a ‘dark’ theme then anything since that is mostly what I write, though I’ll throw in some extras just for you. Cause I adore you.
