Where to Look
A print or online literary journal/review/magazine will accept submissions in a certain time frame, which usually spans two to four months. Other publications accept submissions year round. Some will have reading fees, others will be free. A few will only have fees associated with entering a contest. The key is to find a publication that fits the style of your submission.
