    Awesome post! I’ve had stories in several anthologies. Most paid in exposure, but there were a few that paid well. It’s also very nice in padding your writing resume.

    I’ve been in a couple of different anthologies but never really saw any benefits come to me from them, but then again…they weren’t like anthologies that the IWSG does or the ones listed here.

    I do occasionally submit to anthologies, but as a rule, that only happens if the theme pretty much instantly inspires me. I prioritize my novel writing, so if I can’t instantly think of something for an anthology, there’s just no time for me to sit down and ponder it out.

      Absolutely, Misha. Besides, the stories that grab you and want to be written for anthologies generally don’t want to be turned into novels 😉

    I’ve been published in several anthologies and the IWSG also puts out a yearly anthology. It’s great exposure and sometimes it does pay as well.

      Anthologies are a great way to build your audience — and as long as you get out of it what you hoped, I don’t see much of a downside. Can’t wait for the new IWSG anthology 🙂
