Submittable, Duotrope? Meet The Grinder

The Submission Grinder is a free submission tracker and market database for writers of fiction and poetry.

The Grinder is and always will be free to all users for all features. But better than many of the other fee-based submission trackers, The Grinder has one unique feature the others lack. You can search their database of publications by acceptable word count. This is exactly what short story writers need.

I have a story with 15,927 word count and decided to search for publishing opportunities. These are the places that a targeted search in The Grinder says will accept submissions of that size. I am just learning to use The Grinder so this is an unpolished result. I chose the Category of Literary fiction.
