- MAGAZINES THAT ACCEPT UNPUBLISHED AUTHORS: Here is a list of magazines that accept submissions from previously unpublished authors. Before submitting your story, you will want to preview each magazine to see if what they publish matches the style of what you want to submit. Also, be very careful to read exactly how each magazine wants to receive your submission. Some magazines, for example, require a query and other do not. Good luck!
2. The Bay Area Book Festival: This is a great resource and connection to wonderful writers, presentations and great books.
