If you would, Michelle, could you please leave me a list of your best-sellers and what other websites and magazines beginner freelance writers should look to for submission? Is it really necessary to get an agent for magazine writing (i.e., to get published in the “heavy hitter” magazines and websites as the ones you mentioned in your comment [New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Zoetrope, or Boulevard])? What kind of agent should I look for? Would any agent do or would I need to look for one that specializes in representing magazine and website writers? Your help in answering these questions would be much appreciated. Thank you ever so much in advance! I greatly appreciate it!

Great list of heavy hitters. These are terrific publications, but most of them are extremely tough to crack and several only really consider agented submissions (even if their guidelines say otherwise). I think emerging writers should also submit to smaller magazines that are open to work by unpublished or not-widely-published writers (like Fiction Attic!). As a NYT bestselling author with four novels and two story collections under my belt , I know that my chances of getting into the New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Zoetrope, or Boulevard are exceedingly slim. Unpublished writers may find a home for their work at reputable, university-sponsored magazines, which are often run by MFA candidates and may be more serious about reading unsolicited, unagented submissions.
