The database is still the best place to find out the way businesses really respond to new writing, and do feel free to use the on-line form, but please check contact details with another source before sending work to a business. The New Writers' Network is the best guide to being published on the Internet. All of the addresses below are open to submissions of manuscripts by new writers, though some more so than others.
