My Scifi Short Story Production Board - Jackson Allen

Greetings! This is my scifi short story production board, where I list all the scifi short stories I am working on. Organization is key if you intend to be successful, so I wanted to track all my work in a single place. You might find this process interesting, and instructive for your own writing journey. You might also enjoy some of my microfiction entries. Read below for a breakdown on the publication / submittal process.

The Publication Process

The process is relatively simple, once I think a story is good enough for publication I’ll submit it to magazines/online anthologies that I think will purchase them. I don’t submit to free online resources and/or smaller publishers for a very important reason (Here’s why). If it doesn’t meet their needs, I’ll try elsewhere. If a story has been through a round-robin of publishers with no success, then I’ll publish it online as a free story for new members of the Inkican Crew.
